Carlo Bartoli for Arflex, 'Bicia' lounge chairs, fiberglass, leather, Italy, 1969.
Pair of black fiberglass framed lounge chairs upholstered with the finest soft cognac leather. The flowing line of the black fiberglass back emphasize the elegance of the chair, giving it the luxurious appearance accustomed to Italian design. The leather seating is adorned with beautifully executed stitchwork, which is applied diagonally over the back and the armrests. Both chairs contain a lower back pillow in cognac leather.
Originally, the 'Bicia' chair was made of the furniture at 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.
