After Adam, Fratelli Boffi

Sculptural forms that are classically inspired, but with a modern twist are the leitmotif of After Adam, the new collection by Fratelli Boffi created by British architect Archer Humphryes which have wanted to specifically pay homage to the eighteenth-century Scottish designer, Robert Adam.

The old ébéniste tradition and Fratelli Boffi’s artisan experience give life to a rich selection of products in which materials and shapes are the overall protagonists. Woods, metals, brass, bronze, silver, glass, and leather are like languages inspired by architecture and coordinated with workmanship and sophisticated decor – they mix together in an eccentric collection that, as always, leaves wide room for the ironic and playful vision of the company from Brianza.

The Four Tetrarchs table, impressive and majestic in its 3.50m length, quintessentially draws together tradition and modernity. 

The linearity of the monumental grey oak top is decorated in a different direction from the wood grain, created by the top’s division into squares that converge in the center. In full contrast with minimalism, the four legs are instead defined by a refined process characterized first by fluid and rounded contours that neatly finish into a truncated cone, almost reminiscent of stylized forms of chess pieces.
