Salone, viewed critically 04: Funny and Glossy
No, the past wasn’t more tinsel, things are still fun today. And while it the past it was only metal that glittered, while wood played modest, today the lacquers really gleam.
Nomen est omen is how we talked last year about the “Sfatto” sofa by Francesco Binfaré (‘sfatto’ in Italian means ‘unmade’, as in an unmade bed). And the same holds true, perhaps even more so, for the armchair of the same name: a triumph of apparently unk
empt softness which in reality supports the body in a totally unexpected way (thanks, as always with Edra, to a hidden yet highly complex engineering). The “Sfatto” armchair has an elegantly ‘used’ attitude, as if imprinted with the residual signs of the
passions and the lives that unfold upon it. With “Sfatto” Francesco Binfaré has once again proven himself master of a concept of comfort as intriguing as it is unprecedented.
