Carlo Scarpa 'Cornaro' Sofas for Simon, 1973

About

Carlo Scarpa for Simon, 'Cornaro' sofas, silver metallic velvet fabric, wood, Italy, 1973 The 'Cornaro' sofa by Carlo Scarpa is a perfect example of the Ultrarazionale style; breaking away from the strict limits of Rationalism, resulting in a sofa with a solid hardwood structure and one-unit side and back cushion fastened to the frame corners. The sofa has a very thick cushion and is upholstered with silver metallic velvet fabric. The sofa has a relatively thin back and armrests compared to the seat. The frame is made out of a thick round wooden basket that holds the cushions together. This sofa is large and comfortable and creates a shell around the sitter. Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) is known as a virtuoso of light, a master of detail and a connoisseur of materials. He is most well-known for his architectural projects, counting 58 in total. Most famous are the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona, the Olivetti showroom in Venice and the Brion Tomb in San Vito d’Altivole. His lush use of decorative aspects and crafted details are still unrivalled. His designs show very clear traits of Scarpa’s aesthetic language that holds the middle between Japanese minimalism and organic forms of nature. Please note that the price is per item, not for the set. Literature: - Gramigna, Giuliana. Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000 per L'Arredamento Domestico. Allemandi: Torino, 2003, p. 211.
