Luca Scacchetti, 2001
A tub, a shell, a hull, an empty open shape entirely upholstered in leather. An upside-down, extended saddle resting on fine metal stirrups and filled with cushions that follow the outline and at the same time soften it. It brings to mind neoclassical, clean-cut, unadulterated shapes and the voluptuousness of the sensual forms of feminine figures always seen reclining on them in classic paintings or academy representations, completing the classicist geometries and references.
Its lyre shape recall classical atmospheres in a moderate elegance, together with the extraordinary richness of the saddle leather and refined saddler’s stitching.
The pictures are illustrative and there may be slight chromatic variations in the realization.
