Gianni Songia for Sormani, 'GS-195' sofa, leather, lacquered wood, Italy, 1963

Italian designer Gianni Songia created the 'GS-195' sofa or daybed in 1963. The all-black design brings the focus on the rather special forms of the daybed. The circular backrest with thick leather upholstery is adjustable in height. Therefore the sofa can be turned and used as a daybed. The seat is upholstered with three cushions that provide great comfort. Two sculptural feet lift the sofa up that combines elegance with functionality and characterizes this unique design by Gianni Songia.

Sormani was founded in Arosio (Como, Italy) in 1961 by Luigi Sormani, at the age of twenty-nine. It quickly became one of the most innovative firms in Italian furniture design. From the early 60s until the end of the 80s, Sormani produced extraordinary objects with the concept of “total living” in mind. Using innovative materials and techniques, the factory in Arosio created modular furniture, freestanding pieces, functional pieces, chairs, lamps, carpets and accessories that became an integral part of iconic Italian design history.
