About

'Soriana' lounge chairs, in fabric and metal, by Afra & Tobia Scarpa for Cassina, Italy, 1969.  Iconic lounge chairs by Italian designer couple Afra & Tobia Scarpa, the Soriana proposes a model that institutionalizes the image of the informal sitting where everything has a soft line and escapes the bond of a definite disaster. Here the mass of the material and the backrest is supported and contained by a metal armor. The uncanny, original design that consists of the large cushions, the tufted surface creates an vibrant appearance. Beautiful elements are the chromed metal parts which holds the cushions on its place on the frame. Please note that we also have the matching sofa in stock. Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) and Afra Scarpa (1937-2011) were trained as architects and influenced by various themes. Their main focus was the material itself followed by nature, Venetian and Japanese culture. Literature: Gramigna, Giuliana. Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000 per L'Arredamento Domestico. Allemandi: Torino, 2003, p. 174. These lounge chairs hold their original brown velvet upholstery. This fabric is in good condition.
