Libro is the armchair you’ve never seen before: designed by Gianni Pareschi for Busnelli in 1970, libro is now relaunched with new materials, colours and technical devices, all while staying true to its original identity.
Libro is displayed in one of its most modern guises with its metal frame in the distinctive busnelli Ombra colour. Among the new possible coverings, the grey velvet of the side strips are combined with the blue or red of the support seat. Libro can be disassembled into its individual parts, making it a modern icon even in this sense.
The height of the seat and backrest can be adjusted by flipping through the various parts of the upholstery, just like the pages of a book, to admire the design from new perspectives. Its painted metal support structure features a central joint that supports the “pages” hinged to the frame’s pivot point, allowing them to be moved with ease.
Between 1969 and 1970, Gianni Pareschi designed some of the brand’s most original chairs for Busnelli, including Fiocco, Armadillo, Baffo and Libro. Items that have become icons of radical design, revealing ingenious design skills and unique expressive power.
