Rare 'Veranda' Sofa by Vigo Magistretti for Cassina
This sofa from the early 1980’s is one of the era’s most inventive and seminal designs. It features three separate chairs, arranged on a fixed base. The two side chairs swivel up to 90 degrees outwards to make for a more intimate seating arrangement. Each chair has an adjustable fold-over headrest, with Cassina’s famous bicycle chain device inside. The base is lacquered wood and metal. The piece bears the Cassina label.
The sofa has been re-upholstered in a fine white cord weave. The base been resprayed and the inner mechanics have been serviced and lubricated. Vigo Magistretti was an Italian industrial designer, furniture designer, and architect. He won several awards, including the Gold Medal of the Chartered Society of Industrial Artists and Designers in 1986.
