About

Afra & Tobia Scarpa for Cassina, 'Soriana' sofa, grey fabric and metal, Italy, 1969.  Iconic sofa 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. 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 grey cushions on its place on the frame. Please note that we also have the matching lounge chair in stock. 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.
