or Call to Order

Lina lounge chair features an unusual wood frame that lends it a solid, yet light­weight, appear­ance. Its singu­lar­ity lies in the slender legs and bent plywood element that supports the side of the seat back and curves up to become the wing’ upon which the armrests sit. Lina is a re-edition of one of the earli­est projects designed by Gian­franco Frat­tini, one of the great masters of Italian design. Nomi­nated in 1955 for the Compasso d’oro, the lounge chair repre­sents a very inno­v­a­tive work­man­ship tech­nique for its time, carried out today with historical accuracy.

Gianfranco Frattini

Italy (1926–2004)

An Italian designer, Gianfranco Frattini was best known for his work as both an architect and an industrial designer. Born in Padua in 1926, he studied under Gio Ponti before opening his own architecture practice. Frattini found his way into industrial design when he came across a gap in design for lighting and furniture for his interior spaces. Thus began a wide array of collaboration with many furniture design houses, including Cassina, Bernini, Arteluce, Fantoni, Artemide, and Knoll. In 1956, he became one of the founding members of the Association of Industrial Design. Notable furniture pieces include the Boalum Lamp in 1969 and 780/783 a set of low beechwood and black lacquer tables.
