Prototype Feltri Chair by Gaetano Pesce on Wright

Prototype Feltri Chair

A Happy 2024 to you all. Like last year I’ll try to post at least once per day in 2024. Last year, after Easter, I stopped when I was hospitalized for 10 days and had to lie down for a couple of weeks. Then my whole rhythm had disappeared. A new Year with new chances!

Lot 140 at a Wright Auction (same as lot 140 at the Lama Auction) shows us:

one of Pesce’s two original studies for the Feltri chair. The felt is covered in rubber, which allows it to be washed and waterproofed. This prototype’s base is made of bent felt treated with a rigid resin; this idea was later abandoned because of the materials’ fragility.

La Pagnotta by Gaetano Pesce

La Pagnotta by Gaetano Pesce

La pagnotta is a small armchair with fourteen flexible, jointed legs which can be mounted and dismounted, constructed with tension rods and braces; they hold up a thin, invisible seat padded with a cushion, and wear soft, colorful slippers. Fourteen legs, fourteen feet, and fourteen rods that follow the body movements, fourteen special fiber ribs to reinforce, contain, and support the anthropomorphic cushions; two faces one male and the other female, one looking right and the other looking left which offer a soft welcome.
