'Pecorelle' by Cini Boeri for Arflex
The Italian manufacturer Arflex, fonded in 1947, is surely one of these companies which put Italy on the world’s design map. None other than Marco Zanuso one of the very first architects involved with the systems of product industrialization began – together with a group of technicians coming from Pirelli – to experiment the use of foam rubber and elastic tapes for the furniture brand. Today Arflex is one of the most experienced manufacturer in this field. This year’s collection includes this family of upholstery designed by Cini Boeri. ‘Pecorelle’ is composed of a wooden structure, covered by non-deformable shaped polyurethane with differentiated density, a wooden backrest structure with reinforced elastic straps and legs in metal. The quilted cover is completely removable.
