or Call to Order

Eloro designed by Rodolfo Dornoni for Cassina is all about exquis­ite details and juxta­po­si­tions. Its mini­mal­ist, sculp­tural black-stained ash wood frame features a tour-de-force of artic­u­lated angles and obliques with carpen­try joints that were tech­no­log­i­cally chal­leng­ing even for the master crafts­men who create its frame by hand at Cassina. The back of the frame is composed of leather. Eloro’s result­ing frame in wood and leather supports the unstruc­tured uphol­stered cush­ions – seat cush­ions feature a polyurethane foam core with down padding; back cush­ions are down filled.

Rodolfo Dordoni

Italy (1954)

As a designer, Rodolfo Dordoni has created a career of collaboration, through designing furniture and objects for the home with a wide array of companies. Born in Milan in 1954, Dordoni graduated with a degree in architecture from Milan Polytechnic. He soon began designing for Artemide, working on their glass collection; eventually becoming their art director. Dordoni then transitioned to working for Cappellini from 1979 - 1989. He has since created lines for or work directly with Cassina, Minotti, Flos, Dornbracht, Fontana Arte, Moroso, Roda, and Venini. In 2005 he created his own architecture firm, Dordoni Archietti, which focuses on architectural planning, interior design, and exhibit design. His work is often considered to be simple and intuitive; much of his design process goes beyond the object itself and focuses on the marketing campaign that will feature the piece or line.
