Gianfranco Frattini was one of the most influential designers of the mid-century Italian movement. He graduated in architecture from the Milan Polytechnic as a pupil of Gio Ponti and worked in his master's studio before moving on to open his own studio in Milan. He worked as an architect and above all as a designer, collaborating with craftsmen and industries in Brianza, north of Milan. The model 101 chair, created for Cassina, is one of his most famous designs. Made of mahogany by Cassina's skilled craftsmen, the 101 is a rather simple model, embellished with refined details such as the beveled frame and the joint pins that disappear perfectly into the frame. It reflects the taste of buyers in the 1960s, when people wanted understated furniture with sophisticated design and great attention to detail and craftsmanship, and will certainly appeal to those who share these same values today. This six-person set is in excellent condition and has been professionally restored. The seats have been upholstered in smooth black velvet.
