Massimo and Lella Vignelli for Poltronova, 'Saratoga' three-seat sofa, polyester lacquer and black leather, Italy, 1964
This three-seat sofa named 'Saratoga' is designed by Italian designer couple Lella & Massimo Vignelli. The black lacquered wooden frame holds the beautifully patinated leather cushions like a basket. The geometrical lines of the exterior goes nicely with the soft bulky shape of the cushions. A high level of comfort is provided by the opulent upholstered seating. The Vignelli's were known for their clear designs, this piece is therefore also completely free from decorative details. All attention goes to the essential form and material in this design by Vignelli. The “Saratoga” is one of the first examples of modular and modern living in twentieth century. In their own words: “We have designed this sofa because we really needed a sofa. And the sofa wanted was one with an architectural character rather that a soft, smooth object. A sofa that could be set out in the middle of the room. We didn’t want it to be pushed up against the walls; we wanted it to move around as needed.”
