Antropus was created at the end of the 1940s when Marco Zanuso was commissioned to design the sets for the Italian-language version of Thornton Wilder’s play The Skin of Our Teeth, which was dubbed “La Famiglia Antropus” in Italian, and was performed at the Piccolo Teatro in Milan. The architect worked with Arflex to produce an armchair fully upholstered in foam rubber; at the time, this material was considered highly innovative and was being promoted for use in domestic furniture-making for its expressive, and industrial ergonomic potential. The present-day version of this chair features polyurethane foam CFC free. This lends itself to creating a oversized and comfortable seat and back-rest that fit snugly into the slender, curving profile of the side panels. Cassina is making this model available in the original iconic red fabric upholstery.
