Contemporary 1970s Style Italian Arflex Strips Corduroy Sofas, Set of 2

On Hold
$8,500per set

About

Set of two contemporary 1970s-style Italian Arflex "Strips" sofas. One sofa has a left arm, the other sofa has a right arm, making many configurations possible. Shaped polyurethane with differentiated density on a metal and poplar frame. Gold corduroy slipcovers are fully removable with zippers. Dimensions below are for one piece. The sofas are identical. The Strips seating system was designed by Cini Boeri for Arflex in 1972. Cini Boeri earned her degree at Politecnico in Milan in 1951 and started her independent professional activity in 1963 (after a period of collaboration with Marco Zanuso), working in architecture and design fields. She designed houses, apartments and shops, both in Italy and abroad, paying particular attention to the study of the functionality of the space in smaller houses and to the psychological relationships between man and environment. In the area of industrial design, she concerned herself with furnishing elements and components for the building trade. Different examples of her achievements can be found in museums and international exhibitions and she awarded many prizes, among which, in 1979, a Compasso d’Oro. She lectured at the Architecture faculty of Politecnico in Milan and conferences in the universities of various cities in the world. She published, among others, “The human sizes of house” (Milan, 1980).
