FRATELLI BOFFI: Italian craftsman
Sculptural forms that take inspiration from the classic, but revisited in a modern way, are the leitmotiv of Fratelli Boffi . The ancient cabinetmaking tradition and the craftsmanship experience come together to give life to a rich variety of products in which materials and shapes are the absolute protagonists: a collection of luxury furnishings that responds to contemporary comfort, remaining modern functional, while not detaching from precious legacy of tradition.
Each collection is characterized by proportion, imagination and meticulous research of fine finishes and essences revisited in a contemporary key that add eccentric visions and ironic interpretations, combining the long Italian tradition in the field of wood processing with cutting-edge techniques . All this contributes to recreate a personal and original conception of design and the world of furniture.
The company is characterized by two strong souls: the first is dedicated to research and covers all possible roads; the second is expressed authoritatively in the world of collective spaces and in contract thanks to a culture of almost a century of project that uses the most modern technologies without renouncing Italian craftsmanship and making it its flagship. Within the company there are several production departments that allow you to develop most of the projects completely "in house": a dedicated team develops the initial design that will then pass to all subsequent production areas, from carving to chiselling, from painting padding. The company is in fact now renowned in the world for its great ability to combine quality , versatility and professionalism .
"La Recherche" Collection by Ferruccio Laviani
"Even if composed of two stylistically opposed projects, one with clear reference to neo-gothic architecture and the second the revisiting of Italian furniture from the 50s, the" La Recherche "collection by Fratelli Boffi for the Salone del Mobile 2017 in reality it's not random at all.
In fact, as in the book of Proust, memory is the means to evolve in the future through memory and art.
Trying to combine these two elements combined with the craftsmanship and tradition in the wood working of F.lli Boffi , I exasperated with the Gothik-A sideboard the stylistic features that distinguish the Gothic style by crossing, deforming, manipulating them to create a cage, a spider web of wood, which encloses a glass container.
In the D / Vision furniture, the decomposition, the division, on different levels of a classic buffet of the 50's redraws the lines making it unexpected and surprising while letting it glimpse the original shape.
Exactly like the taste of the Madeleine that, as told by Proust, also eaten after years make memories of childhood resurface, so also the collection La recherche refers us to what is the archetype of both furniture, but without any nostalgic or typical way of the classic furniture, but bendì turned to the design of the future, contemporary interior decoration, through the unparalleled quality of the artisan furniture.
