An original Soriana sofa by Afra and Tobia Scarpa for Cassina.
A stunning example of mid century design and one of the finest sofas to emerge in post war Europe.
Arguably the finest Italian sofa design of the 20th Century and very seldom available for sale.
Originally designed in 1969 this sofa is an early edition dating to circa 1975. When first shown to the public in 1969 at the Milan Design fair it won the Gold Medal or the Compasso d’Oro.
Upholstered in the original brown corduroy fabric supported by the iconic steel clamps which give the piece its distinctive and iconic look.
Very, very stylish and extremely comfortable. The perfect combination of form and function.
Offered in good original condition with normal signs of use and wear for age. Fading to the fabric along the top of the sofa. A couple of buttons missing and a small repaired tear where one button was and a nearby stain – please see close up photo.
A very scarce piece and very seldom available for sale.
