Description

For the installation at the VII Triennale, Franco Albini designs some new pieces. One of these is a new all-wood version of the already presented rocking chaise-longue, then produced by the Poggi company of Pavia starting in 1959. The object, with the name "Canapo", returned to production in 2008 with the Cassina company in Meda, but it is the result of an experimentation on the theme of the rocking chaise-longue, which began with a series of prototypes as early as the 1930s. Starting from the 1937 furnishings of the Albini house in which a mechanistic chaise-longue appears, already presented at the 1936 Triennale, built in a tubular structure, with exposed springs and foam rubber mattress, which is fixed, in an apparent unstable equilibrium, to a mighty iron pedestal. A very similar version is found about a year later, again in Albini's apartment, but this time already with the concept of rocking, made with a tubular structure of black painted iron, wooden seat and foldable foam cushions.
