Sculptural forms that take inspiration from the classic, but revisited in a modern key are the leitmotiv of the Fratelli Boffi collections. The ancient cabinetmaking tradition and the craftsmanship experience of the company give life to a rich variety of products in which materials and shapes are the absolute protagonists: a collection of furnishings that responds to contemporary comfort, remaining modern and functional, though not detached from precious legacy of tradition.
La Recherche by Ferruccio Laviani
Although composed of two stylistically opposed projects, one with clear reference to neo-Gothic architecture and the second the revisiting of Italian furniture from the 50s, the "La Recherche" collection by Fratelli Boffi for the Salone del Mobile 2017 is not really it's not at all random. In fact, memory is the means to evolve in the future through memory and art.
Trying to combine these two elements together with the craftsmanship and tradition in the wood working of F.lli Boffi, the designer has exaggerated with the Gothik-A sideboard the stylistic features that distinguish the Gothic style by crossing, deforming, manipulating them to create a cage, a spider web of wood, which encloses a glass container.
In the D / Vision furniture, the decomposition, the division, on different levels of a classic buffet of the 50s, redraws the lines making it unexpected and surprising while leaving a glimpse of the original shape.
La Recherche refers to what is the archetype of both furniture, but without any nostalgic heritage or typical of classic furniture, but rather turned to the design of the future, contemporary interior decoration, through the unparalleled quality of the furniture crafts.
