sanluca.


Even though I'm a little very afraid to sit in the Sanluca chair from Poltrona Frau, I think it's sensational to look at. It was originally designed by the Castiglioni brothers in 1961, before scientific research proved that this chair would kill you after prolonged seating. The artistic concept of the Sanluca was to empty the traditional padding that furniture was saddled with and lay bare the essential curves. Of course, the padding was there for a reason guys! But I have to admit this thing is amazingly stylish. The ottoman was designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1991 and mercifully has a bit more padding on it.

Being the coolest guy on the planet, when I say you have a knack for writing, it's not to be taken lightly! Keep up the great work. Other planetary "cool guys" like myself do actually read these things!

Kind regards,
