The Bohemian 72 Collection brings together Gabriella Crespi’s interest in natural materials, her fascination with stacked sculptural forms, and her curiosity about Eastern cultures and philosophies, honed over years of travel. During her lifetime, these exclusive pieces were only ever produced for private clients, but today, 50 years after they were first conceived, in the year she would have turned 100, GUBI has worked from Crespi’s original drawings to bring an extraordinary collection of iconic furniture designs into production for the first time. In the Bohemian 72 Collection, GUBI has distilled Crespi’s vision of a versatile furniture family for her house of the sun, conjuring a worldly Milanese sophistication from one of nature’s most humble-seeming materials. Elegant, flexible, and refined, the collection is the pinnacle of the jet-set bohemian lounge lifestyle. Alongside the ‘Rising Sun’ and ‘Five Positions’ Collections, the Bohemian 72 Collection was part of Crespi’s wider ‘Bamboo Collection’, designed between 1972 and 1975, and encompassing a broad range of natural materials such as manao, malacca and manila canes, and woven wicker and straw. Comprising a lounge chair, three-seater sofa, ottoman and floor lamp – all crafted from rattan – the Bohemian 72 Collection embodies Crespi’s career-long aim to create furniture that seamlessly unites indoor and outdoor living. She never allowed curtains or screens to block the natural flow of light or air and had what her daughter has described as ‘a deep sentiment for the cosmic energy of nature’.
