Mario Bellini Brown Velvet Camaleonda Sofa for B&B Italia, 1972, Set of 2

About the Item

Camaleonda sofa, designed by Mario Bellini and manufactured by B&B Italia in 1972. The set features two big modules with one backrest. Brown cotton velvet upholstery. Fully restored in Italy. The sofa is very comfortable, and the fact this wonderful piece is modular provides endless flexible solutions for any project or living room. This design became famous almost immediately after being featured in the exhibition ‘Italy and The New Domestic Landscape’ in the MOMA Museum in 1972. Mario Bellini (1935-) is trained as an architect and became one of the leading designers in postwar Italian style. At the beginning of his career, he worked with Olivetti, Cassina, and B&B Italia, which resulted in an early knowledge of synthetic resins and polyurethanes. His furniture is exciting, both in its use of the material and the originality of his designs. Bellini did not believe in precise boundaries of design; instead, he designed for the relationship of man and environment. It is impossible to pigeonhole Bellini’s oeuvre, as his work is so complex and original.
