or Call to Order

The Feltri lounge chair designed by Gaetano Pesce is a one of a kind piece coveted by collec­tors. Created entirely from dense wool felt, the pliable, wrap-around back is all one piece, while the lower section is treated with a ther­moset­ting resin to make it rigid and sturdy. The seat attaches to the frame through the use of hemp ties; these also extend around the chair’s upper part. Feltri’s design is the summa­tion of where the artis­tic meets func­tional. Ten color­way options are avail­able for you to mix and match and select the seat and frame combi­na­tion of your choosing.

Gaetano Pesce

Italy(1939)

As an Italian architect, designer, and urban planner, Gaetano Pesce is best known for his modern aesthetic that incorporates ordinary materials with experimental forms. Born in 1939, Pesce studied architecture at the University of Venice, learning from the tutelage of both Ernesto Rogers and Carlo Scarpa. Throughout 1958-1963, Pesce participated in Gruppo N, a design collaboration that focused on creating art similar in program to that of the Bauhaus. His architectural work often featured natural elements, including his work in Osaka, Japan in creating the Organic Building. Pesce’s industrial design led to collaborations with B&B Italia, Vitra, and Cassini; much of which include pieces that embody his usual wit and style. Many of his 3D models and prototypes are featured in the permanent collections of museums around the world, including MoMA in New York City, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Triennale Museum in Milan.
