Exit

Fratelli Boffi, a furnishing company hailing from the Lombardy region, has numerous high-backed chairs in their repertoire; they further enhance Boffi’s already eclectic catalogue. The original designs are contemporary yet majestic, like ‘Parallel’ by Philippe Bestenheider, while others lean towards the classical, like Giorgio Pulici’s ‘Maxime’, made of gold-painted wood, or ‘Duchess of Home’, which envelops like a shell, by Archer Humphryes Architects. Each is quite regal, if not papal, like ‘Babette’, whose rounded forms finish in a hooded back. The series reveals not only the company’s woodworking skills, but their ability to reinterpret classical design with an original vision that has almost fairy tale elements. Theirs is not so much stylistic production as having predicted a new trend that leans towards the classical. They trace the history of furnishing with imagination, bringing memory-evoking, new creations to life.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
