A familiar figure on many modern antiques’ and collectors’ sites, Feltri is a summation of thinking about figuration in the hybrid zone where the artistic meets the functional.

One of a kind, this piece stands out for its enormous flexibility and for the fact that the mattress-like seat can be upholstered in wide array of fabrics. These can be mixed and matched to the six new colour options of the frame, to provide a total of ten colourways.

Feltri was created within Cassina’s Research Centre, a place synonymous with experimentation and constructional avant-garde thinking, where Gaetano Pesce dedicated time and thought to the design, in the process thinking up a complex new manufacturing process that was later patented by the company. Created entirely from dense wool felt, the pliable, wrap-around back is all one piece, while the lower section, which is rigid and sturdy, is impregnated with a thermoset resin. The seat is attached to the frame using hemp ties; these also extend around the chair’s upper part. A comfortable quilt, polyester-padded, serves to upholster the inner section of the chair.
