Designed in the late 60s by architect Cini Boeri, the modular system Strips revolutionised the furniture world and belongs to Arflex history : it is certainly one of the most famous products, which immediately won recognition of the Compasso d’Oro award and is exhibited in different museums in the world, like for example Triennale in Milan, in Tokyo, at Moma in New York.
Strips coordinates with the new Cradle family, composed by armchair and sofa, designed by Neri&Hu. The pieces are modeled by the rich tradition of the Italian design, well known for its sculptural and audacious forms, both from the modernist sensibility, which requires an honest structural expression. Instead of hiding the structure and trying to make the products rise from the ground, the elegant support elements are themselves the highlights of the model.
Other products of the collection surround and complete the stand: the inevitable vintage pieces, that continue to seduce and confirm themselves as evergreen in Arflex history.
Thanks to the game of screens Vela, realised by coloured glasses, harmony of the space is created with a play of transparencies.
The contrast between warm and cold tones makes the atmosphere pleasant and welcoming.
