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.
Active since 1927, Cassina was one of the first Italian companies to focus on furniture research and innovation. It partnered with distinguished architects and designers to find new ways of designing and thus beginning industrial design in Italy as early as the 1950s. Cassina has always had a very precise identity aknowledged allover the world, due to the balance between technology and craftsmanship.
The Cassina collection "I grandi Maestri" began in 1964 with the collaboration of designers such as Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.
