Brillante choice: Busnelli

Fiocco chair

"Fiocco" means bow in Italian and this chair brings the visual joy of a colorful curly ribbon on a gift for (or from?) someone dear to us.

Two metal ribbons run parallel creating large and sinuous lines and among them is a comfortable stretching fabric. Fiocco, produced by Busnelli, was designed in 1970 by Gianni Pareschi. Part of the MoMA collection and re-edited in 2007, this chair is able to fill any space with its vibrant colors, available also in pure black or white, while being extremely thin and when viewed from the side it shows only the contour, allowing to appreciate other elements of the room.

I can see this chair in a contemporary interior decor or creating a great contrast as
a focal point in a classic interior.

Truly like a piece of art. So magnificent, much like a piece of retro ribbon candy.

Hi there. I'm sorry, but I think that it is lovely, BUT it's kinda offbeat for me. How can you possibly be comfortable in this?

Boca do Lobo usually gets inspiration from Busnelli and their wonderful pieces. The attention to detail and the exclusive feeling of this brand are an example to us all at Boca do Lobo.
