Retrospectiva Collection by Mantellassi
Sharing the same passion for knowledge of art, refinement and craft expertise, Carlo Mantellassi, antiques expert and lover, in 1966 introduced the Mantellassi Retrospectiva Chair Collection as an exclusive Capsule Collection specialised in reproducing armchairs of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
In a few years, Mantellassi’s manufacture has conquered all lovers of ancient art just thanks to the wish it has to respect the techniques of traditional cabinet making and the proportions of authentic successful models. Roberta and Nicola Mantellassi have reintroduced this idea and therefore, it is now a pillar of this International firm, whose range is continuing to expand around the world. A series of icons that can be reproduced on request, in the case of a Baroque style project, now present in a few but highly selected areas, for those few customers who want to surround themselves with the art of forniture.
The collection of chairs, armchairs and sofas imitates the styles of Regency, Louis XV, Louis XVI, the Empire and Restoration, recently Art decò, and it is divided into over thirthy models that can be reproduced in series, while remaining unique pieces thanks to their craft manufacture.
