Fratina is inspired by those classic chairs with rush seats. In Emilio Nanni’s reinterpretation, the designer exaggerates its lines, the legs have a round section and the backrest, attached to the rear legs, is generous to the point of becoming a semicircle in the armchair version. The seat is available in fabric, leather, straps or woven cellulose cord, which simulates the ancient processing of rush wickerwork. Awarded the Red Dot Design Award in 2016, Fratina is quintessentially Billiani – a chair in perfect balance between tradition and experimentation.
