Cini Boeri
Cini Boeri is an architect and designer, graduated from the Milan Polytechnic in 1951, and, after a short internship in Gio Ponti's studio, begins a long collaboration with Marco Zanuso. She began his professional activity in 1963, dealing with civil architecture and industrial design.
Cini Boeri has designed single-family houses, apartments, museum installations, offices, shops in Italy and abroad, paying great attention to the study of the functionality of the space and to the psychological relationships between man and the environment. In the field of industrial design, she dealt in particular with the design of furnishing elements and building components.
Several of his creations are present in museums and international exhibitions. Cini Boeri has participated in numerous juries of international competitions and received numerous international awards, including, in 1979, a Compasso d'Oro for the "Strips" sofa, designed in 1972 for Arflex and exhibited at the permanent collection of the Milan Triennale. The Strips sofa, still in production, was born from the idea of ​​designing a seating system that is easy to manufacture and easy to sell and followed the experiment of the "Serpentone" sofa, always designed for Arflex but no longer in production, consisting of an integral foam structure to be sold by the meter.
Among his collaborations in the field of design, in fact, we must certainly remember the one with Arflex, for which she gave birth, among others, in chronological order, to: Burgundy armchair (1964), Bobo and Cubotto monobloc armchairs (1967 ), Bengodi sofa (1968), Serpentone sofa (1971), Strips sofa (1972), Pecorelle upholstered line (1972), Talete table (1976), Double face revolving bookcase (1980), Malibu table (1983).
She also designed for other important brands such as: Knoll (1970: Lunario table and Gradual sofa; 1977 Brigadier armchair), Stilnovo (1973: Lucetta table lamp), Estel (1989: Steps chest of drawers), Fiam (1987: Ghost glass armchair ), Arnolfo di Cambio, Fusital, Tre-P Tre-Più, Venini, Magis, etc.
