2 seater Maralunga black leather sofa by Vico Magistretti for Cassina, 1970s

70cm H (seat height 40cm) x 170cm W x 85cm D

In great vintage condition. Leather is buttery and smooth. Some markings consistent with age, overall aesthetic is great.

As one of the founding fathers of modern Italian design, prolific architect and industrial designer Ludovico Magistretti (known by his nickname Vico) was guided by his philosophy, “There is no excuse for bad design.” Legend has it that upon seeing the prototype for Magistretti’s Maralunga sofa, Cassina hated it so much that he punched it, breaking the back of the sofa, which crumpled into itself. Unfazed, Magistretti allegedly responded, “Right, great, it looks perfect to me like that,” and the Maralunga's slumped, adjustable-height backrest was born.
