Bohemian 72 Collection
Comprising a lounge chair, three-seater sofa and an ottoman – all crafted from rattan – the Bohemian 72 Collection embodies Crespi’s career-long aim to create furniture that seamlessly unites indoor and outdoor living. She never allowed curtains or screens to block the natural flow of light or air and had what her daughter has described as ‘a deep sentiment for the cosmic energy of nature’.
In the year that Italian designer Gabriella Crespi would have turned 100, and 50 years after its initial conception, GUBI is putting the Bohemian 72 Collection into production for the first time. The collection is the beginning of a new collaboration with Archivio Gabriella Crespi and reflects the harmony between Crespi’s artistic, bohemian vision and her love of travel and GUBI’s confident curations and global outlook. Born in 1922, Italian artist and designer Gabriella Crespi would have turned 100 this year. Throughout her extraordinary career in the design world, she moved effortlessly among both European royalty and the Hollywood jet set. Her indisputable glamour and sophisticated sense of style made her a muse to the fashion designer Valentino, and brought the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Gianni Versace, and Hubert de Givenchy into her social circle.
