Osvaldo Borsani 'D70' Sofa Daybed for Tecno
Osvaldo Borsani for Tecno, sofa and daybed model D70, in steel, brass, Italy, 1954.
This adjustable sofa will be reupholstered in our in-house atelier, which can be done in any kind of fabric or leather you prefer. Was presented on the Triennale of Milan in 1954 where it won the Gold Medal for design. No surprise as this inventive daybed is an original an autonomous piece. Yet not only the design is extraordinary, because so is the technology. With a single twist of the beautiful stainless steel button the back and seating are positioned upwards or down, all to create the highest comfort for the sofa or bed. The catalogue of Tecno claims that 'Dreaming on this sofa is an enchantment; sleeping on the bed is a dream.'
