lucidipevere: raphia seat for casamania

‘raphia’ by lucidipevere for casamania

 

 

 

the metal industry and the traditional techniques used in manufacturing cane products are brought together in ‘raphia’. the chair expresses a contemporary aesthetic through its metal frame (available in white, black, bordeaux or azure),while also reminding us of the time-honored process of furniture caning which has been applied to form the design’s seat and backrest.lucidipevere‘s intentions with developing this chair for casamania was an attempt to conserve the know-how of working with the natural material–where manual skills and craftsmanship are combined to insure that objects are unique, particularly in a time where many thingsare mass produced.
