Afra & Tobia Scarpa 'Artona' Bed with Nightstands

$16,700

About

Afra & Tobia Scarpa, 'Artona' bed with nightstands, rosewood and metal, Italy, 1975. The Artona line by the Scarpa duo was in fact the first line ever produced by Maxalto, the specialist division of B&B Italia. Maxalto was originally set up in 1975 as a high-end division of B&B Italia to focus exclusively on the production of artisanal, mostly wood furniture. The Artona was their first project and also functions as a counter-message against the common prevailing use of plastics in furniture design during the postwar period. This bed was designed during the first period of the Artona collection, it combines the edging in striped  rosewood and the use of a high quality leather covering on the front. Please note that the mattress is not included. Measurements for the mattress are: 177 x 195 cm. Afra (1937-2011) & Tobia (1935-) Scarpa both studied on the Venice Institute of Architecture. Tobia first worked for the Italian glass manufacturer Venini. From 1960 on the couple opened their own design office. Their work includes architecture and everyday items like furniture and clothing. Tobia & Afra designed for numerous major Italian and international companies like Flos, Gavina, B&B Italia, Cassina, Knoll International and many interior projects for numerous companies worldwide.
