or Call to Order

The Maralunga Sofa designed by Vico Magistretti features a lounge chair, ottoman, and sofas avail­able in both two-seat and three seat sizes – each sofa size is also avail­able in two widths along with differ­ent depths. Instead of the typical, expected treat­ment of back cush­ions resting upon or behind the seat cush­ions, Magistretti envi­sioned a seat back that would liter­ally fold over to create back cush­ions that appear to visu­ally levi­tate above each seat cushion. When not employed as such, the back­rest can be unfolded to create an erect tall cradle func­tion­ing as a neck support for lounging.

Vico Magistretti

Italy (1920–2006)

An industrial designer, furniture designer, architect and urban planner, Vico Magistretti was born in Milan. Heavily influenced by the humanist work of his mentor, Ernesto Nathan Rogers, combined with the rebuilding needs after World War II, Magistretti built with human scale in mind. His architectural work includes his involvement in the experimental neighborhood of QT8, where he designed a round church. His product design abilities led him to collaborations with Artemide, Cassina, De Padova, Flou, Fritz Hansen, Kartell and Schiffini. His work is still produced by Cassina to this day, including the Claritas Floor Lamp and the Maralunga 40 sofa.
