About the Item

Alessandro Becchi for Giovannetti Collezioni, 'Anfibio' sofa, leather, steel, Italy, 1971 The Anfibio sofa, a rare and innovative creation by Italian designer Alessandro Becchi for Giovannetti Collezioni, stands as a classic example of 1970s Italian modern design.

The soft suede upholstery, combined with the innovative convertible design, makes this sofa a timeless piece that encapsulates the adventurous spirit and creativity of 1970s Italian design.
