A project that catalyses and revisits the creative ferment of an era. “Letizia”, an armchair designed in 1954 by Gastone Rinaldi. Encapsulating the visual and formal style of the 1950’s, “Letizia” is the product of a genuinely organicistic approach adopted by the designer. Gastone Rinaldi experiments with new formal solutions, works on full and empty spaces, on sensual and soft lines.
And in the end everything fits together in an original and perfect harmony, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. The seat is welcoming and comfortable. The backrest acquires new elasticity. The supports, thin and sleek, fit perfectly with the shell. Poltrona Frau explores the less familiar history of design and brings a small masterpiece of style and thought back to life. An icon that has retained the power of its designer’s successful intuition over time.Designer: Gastone Rinaldi Project name: Letizia
