Roly Poly in Yellow / Duplex X CasentinoFaye Toogood
Duplex launches DUPLEX X CASENTINO. The iconic Roly Poly armchair designed by Faye Toogood and manufactured by Driade, with the exclusive cushions in the ancient Casentino cloth from Tuscany, Italy.
Casentino is a rugged and compact wool fabric used since the Middle Ages to make blankets for the animals or Franciscan friars’ cowls, because of its characteristic strength and durability. It then made its fortune in the 18th century, when the wool cloth became the primary product of the numerous wool mills of the Casentino valley.
After having become a fashionable and a sought after garment in the 19th century, thanks to its peculiar “swirls” or “curls” and to its classic extravagant colors, the Casentino fabric encountered the likes of personalities such as Giuseppe Verdi and Giacomo Puccini. They wore very elegant double breasted coats with haute-couture cut.
Duplex’s fascination in combining different fields and times brings now together the 21st century Faye Toogood’s Roly Poly with the long-lived, nearly forgotten Casentino fabric. The collection features 4 colors: White, Black, Pink, and Yellow.
