Casamania, Raphia

18 April 2013

Raphia looked good on paper. The real thing, viewed at the Salone, was even better. The chair designed by LucidiPevere for Casamania is a successful contemporary reinterpretation of traditional materials. An embossed metal structure, painted in lively colors, supports a snug and comfortable seat woven from natural cane (27 meters per chair). A product poised between handicraft and industry, in the purest Italian tradition.
