Raphia by Lucidipevere

Raphia is the perfect convergence of modernity and tradition, of technology and craftsmanship. An oxymoron that brings together two of the spirits of production in Italy: the metal industry and the small,timehonoured manufacturers of cane products.

The aim of the project is to lend a certain continuity to the tradition of crafting with cane, one that stretches back to the beginning of the last century. Today, there remain very few firms which conserve the know-how of this trade, where manual skills and craftsmanshipcombine to insure that every creation is unique.

Raphia embodies this history and tradition in a contemporary context, thanks to a harmonious balance between two materials: the metal structure is the base upon which the cane and rattan are weaved to create the seating area.
