Set of 6 Foemina chairs designed by Augusto Betti.

The Foemina chair is Betti’s first design object.

“These chairs were made to give my students an example of how new shapes can be created by following the possibilities suggested by new materials. A plastic chair does not have to be like a wooden chair, as these two materials have completely different technical characteristics. For a wooden chair (which can be solid) it is normal to have four legs. Resin, which can be laminated and reinforced to be strong even at very thin thicknesses, is more suitable for covering shapes. A resin chair with four legs is a false chair and is also usually not very stable”. – Augusto Betti
