The duality of hand craftsmanship and technology is beautifully reconciled in the Raphia Chair for Casamania, recently introduced at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile Milano. Designed by the studio of LucidiPevere, the Raphia was born out of desire to honor the ancient artisanal Italian tradition of caning – and contemporize it through marriage with industrial metal technology.
The result is a harmonious union that showcases the hand-hewn natural cane seating, while the steel plays a supporting role as architectural framework.
As the central focus of the Raphia design, the cane is always left natural, while the metal comes in white, azure, bordeaux, and black.
