CHIARA ANDREATTI AND SU MAISTU DE LINNA FOR PRETZIADA
In every rural Sardinian home there are a few wooden, caned chairs that sit in a corner. They are pulled out when visitors come over, when the fire is lit, when it is time to sit in a circle and shell fava beans or crack open almonds. Chiara Andreatti was inspired by the social aspect behind their use, and by the variations of design and decoration that can be found on historic versions. Hers are enlarged versions - by maintaining the classic proportions while making them bigger overall, she has made them both important and comfortable.
