Fratellino is Italian for little brother and the name of Sika Design’s latest contribution to the ICONS collection. Our new Fratellino is a decorative trolley made from rattan and it is, as implied by the name, originally designed by the Italian design duo Franco Albini and Franca Helg in 1951. They were both renowned architects and designers and had a professional relationship from the beginning of the 1950s up until the death of Franco Albini in 1977. In their rattan furniture design, they became widely known for merging modern minimalistic design with traditional Italian craftsmanship.
”We were fortunate to find the original sketches for Fratellino in Franco Albini’s design archives along with those for the beautiful Belladonna sofa we introduced in 2015. We feel very honoured that we have been given access to these achieves, and not least that we have been given the rights to produce these beautiful Italian designs more than 60 years after they were introduced the first time”, says Louise Andreasen, CEO, Sika Design.
Fratellino serves as a trolley, which is easy to move around as needed. It can be used for both serving and storage. It fits perfectly next to the Belladonna sofa and it also fits the style of the remaining ICONS designs from the same collection. Due to the sculptural ornamented design, Fratellino, can also function as a decorative piece on its own. →
