Carlo Bartoli for Arflex Pair of 'Bicia' Lounge Chairs in Fiberglass
Carlo Bartoli for Arflex, pair of 'Bicia' lounge chairs, fiberglass, fabric, Italy, 1969
Pair of black fiberglass framed lounge chairs designed by Carlo Bartoli for Arflex in 1969. The flowing line of the black fiberglass back emphasize the elegance of the chair, giving it a luxurious appearance. The fabric seating is adorned with beautifully executed stitching, which is applied diagonally over the back and the armrests.
Originally, the 'Bicia' chair was made for the interior of a theater-cabaret in Florence and eventually placed in regular production by Arflex. Its design can be compared with the 1967 'Gaia' chair. However, the padding in the 'Bicia' chair forms an integral part of the drawing, applied with a perimeter fastening system devised by Carlo Bartoli, whereas it was optional for the 'Gaia' chair.
