Afra & Tobia Scarpa for Cassina, 'Soriana' lounge chair with ottoman, leather upholstery, metal, Italy, 1969
Iconic lounge chair 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 and escapes the bond of a definite space. 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 a vibrant appearance. Beautiful elements are the chromed metal parts which holds the cushions on its place on the frame.
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.
