Happy 40th Birthday, Nathalie!

May 04, 2018 admin

The first textile bed, Nathalie by Flou, designed by Vico Magistretti 1978, soft and with its unmistakable bows, is always on the couples’ wish list

The story goes that, forty years ago, Rosario Messina, founder of Flou, realizing the potential of the duvet (at that time, an unknown object to many Italians), wanted a bed with which to combine it. The result was Nathalie with its rounded and soft shapes and its timeless charm.








On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, Flou, at the Salone del Mobile 2018, presented Nathalie with a new look: new fabrics and unusual materials.

Nathalie 40° Limited Edition – realized just in 299 pieces – reproduces one of the 1978 versions with the pillow shams coordinated with the duvet cover. The new color combinations are delicate and decorative: Antique Gold, Rosso Cherry, Azzurro Oceano meet ecru and soft grey, geometries are back, interpreting vintage patterns.
