Gabriella Crespi's Bohemian 72 collection brings together the designer's interest in natural materials, her fascination with stacked sculptural forms, and her curiosity about Eastern cultures and philosophies, honed over years of travel.
Gabriella Crespi originally designed Bohemian in 1972, and exactly 50 years after its original introduction, GUBI has reissued the collection previously only enjoyed by her private clients.
Rattan was chosen as the material, not only for its versatility and durability, but also because it was considered the most elegant and sophisticated material in social circles at the time Crespi designed Bohemian 72. However, her decision to use repetitive layers of rattan wound vertically was unusual for the time and results in a very luxurious, distinctive and timeless version of this type of furniture.
Bohemian 72 cushions are made of foam with a final wadding and its upholstery, which can be removed for better cleaning, is made with a selection of fabrics specially designed to be used outdoors.
Furthermore, its 115º incline backrest invites the user to lie down and relax.
