Although designed in 1978 for the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara, Proust was and still is immediately recognized as an icon of twentieth century design for its use of geometric colour blocking.One of the most renowned and essential reference points in the quest for form and aesthetic perfection. Cappellini inherited the piece in 1993 and today Proust Geometrica, reupholstered in a new cotton fabric by Alessandro Mendini and hand-finished according to tradition, preserves the forms of the original armchair while refreshing them and breathing new life into the image and value of the original design.
