An Italian Luciano Frigerio bronze ‘Donatella’ King Bedhead
A wonderfully decorative headboard by Luciano Frigerio, Italy, 1968. The model is Donatella which is comprised of multiple satin and textured brass panels mounted on a metal frame. It is W1770mm so it will fit a King size mattress (NZ). It can be bolted higher on a wall for additional height.
Luciano Frigerio, Italian Designer, Artist and Musician, (1928-1999) was born in Desio where his father Giovanni established a small workshop of high quality cabinet making in 1889. He obtained his Accounting diploma while cultivating and combining his two great passions of designing furniture and composing music. In 1977, he was dubbed “Maestro Compositore” (Master Composer) and obtained copyrights for his music which was broadcast on Italian RAI channels. The socio-economic reality of Brianza, in those years, offered great entrepreneurial opportunities in furniture. His frequent visits to prestigious studios like Canturine, where he often met masters like Gio’ Ponti, Franco Albini, Carlo de Carli and Tapio Wirkkala, lead him to transform his small family business into a company oriented to the International market with his “Mobile Scultura” Collection. Luciano believed that even an architect could design a unique and highly crafted piece of furniture realized by a cabinet maker with an aesthetic approach, unlike that of the Industrial scale: a Work of Art with a functionality. His works have been featured at prestigious shows and displayed in permanent exhibitions all-over Italy. He died in Sanremo in 1999. (Courtesy of 1st Dibs)
