'Amanta' Sectional Lounges by Mario Bellini for C&B Italia, circa 1966, Signed

$6,900per set

About

This set of three 'Amanta' lounges by Mario Bellini for C&B Italia, which can be connected to form a three-seat sofa or a loveseat and lounge or be used as three separate lounge chairs, is special and unique because it is from the original years of production between 1966 and 1972 prior to B&B's production years. C&B Italia was the original company formed in 1966 by Cesare Cassina (of the company Cassina) and Piero Ambrogio Busnelli. In 1973 Cassina left and C&B became B&B Italia owned and operated by the Busnelli family still to this day. The 'Amanta' system was designed in 1966 by Mario Bellini in the same year C&B was formed. This set was from the original production years from 1966 to 1972. The innovative Fiberlite frames are lightweight and strong. Round black rubber feet with optional metal brackets that can be used to connect sections together if desired. On top are beautiful black leather cushions which are in showroom condition. Signed on the fiberglass frames underneath and under the seat cushions with original C&B labels and embossing (seen in photos). These examples are ideal for a collector client. It is rare to find an original production set from the original C&B years of production in such incredible vintage condition with only light patina. This Mario Bellini 'Amanta' sectional sofa system would work great in a Post-Modern, Mid-Century Modern, Space Age Mod, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Hollywood Regency, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Consider using as a three seat sofa, a settee and lounge chair or three separate side chairs, bedside chairs, fireside chairs, dressing or changing room chairs, hallway chairs, entryway or mudroom chairs, nursing or reading chairs, guest chairs, lobby chairs, lounge chairs or occasional chairs ideal in virtually any setting. MEASUREMENTS: Each section: H 27.5" x W 31.5" x D 34" Seat Height: 16.75" Seat Depth: 23.5" CONDITION: Fiberglass frames are in very good vintage condition with very light vintage wear. Black leather cushions are in excellent condition. Ready for immediate use.
