Description

The iconic 'Maralunga' sofa was designed in 1973 by the highly celebrated Italian designer Vico Magistretti. The progressive design utilised a fully-upholstered metal frame that was not only functional but incredibly comfortable. It also happened to be aesthetically inspiring and voluptuous in a way that only Italians can manage. The unique backrest is fully adjustable allowing the sofa to be used in either a high or low back option.

In 1979 the Maralunga won the coveted Compasso d'Oro design award and it's popularity skyrocketed. This lead to many imitations and a change in the direction of sofa design throughout the world. By 1981 the Maralunga had been selected for entry into the NY MoMA permanent collection, cementing its place as one of the icons of modern design.
