product details

High armchair and low armchair entirely made of thick wool felt. In the lower part, the felt is impregnated with thermosetting resin to guarantee stiffness and resistance. The seat is fixed to the supporting frame by means of hempen strings, which trim also the soft upper edge of the chair. The armchair is completed by mattress in quilted fabric, sewn together with the polyester padding, available in various colours.For a splendid throne that seems to recall archaic ideas of “primitive” living. This seat is made using a specially patented technique from 1987, the Feltri seat expressed the desire to truly explore the possibilities of the material used and is the result of a figurative research that culminated in a hybrid design able to majestically combine art and function.

In 1972 he took part in the famous exhibition “Italy: The New Domestic Landscape” at MoMA in New York, with a dwelling module. Experimentation and irony are also exhibited in his projects for Cassina, amongst which the Tramonto a New York sofa (1980) and the Feltri armchair (1987). After a long period in Paris, he moved to New York in 1983 and now lives and
