Superonda Sofa by Poltronova

About

Superonda sofa (1967). Archizoom (Italy) / Poltronova. Two soft blocks are sculpture, a soft bench, a chaise longue and bed all at once / cut-out of solid polyurethane, covered in shiny red leatherette vinyl. Dimensions: L 240 x H 100 (stacked) x W 38 cm. In the main photo, you will see one of the geniuses of Archizoom & a principal creator of this chair system, Gilberto Coretti. It was my good fortune to meet with this great iconoclast, because he provided insights into the mood of the time when he and his colleagues created it. Superonda was one of the very first sofas without a conventional frame. In the name of a freer way of living, he said, the work encouraged relaxation and reinterpretation of lifestyle (imagine the Beatles laying on one of these!). The initial Challenge or "problem" was how to fix the pieces together so they could construct a bed, a sofa or a chaise longue? "We tried Velcro, buckles and strings, steel clips sunk into the foam, said Maestro Corretti. "In the end, this torment had to stop!! We simply set the pieces free!!!"
