or Call to Order

Orig­i­nally designed in 1969, Soriana lounge chair still today main­tains the same design concept and char­ac­ter­is­tic aesthetic allure while its construc­tion and mate­ri­als have been completely rede­vel­oped for an eco-friendly version that has the aim of creat­ing a lower envi­ron­men­tal impact and a higher level of comfort.

The seat’s comfort is further height­ened thanks to a 100% recy­cled blown fibre padding produced from PET recov­ered from Plastic Bank®. Thanks to the involve­ment of local commu­ni­ties, plastic is collected before it reaches the sea, favor­ing a conscious and circu­lar economy. The same mate­r­ial is also used for the lining’s padding which is wrapped around the struc­ture like a soft quilt. 

This project is part of a larger mission to recover and safe­guard the works of Tobia Scarpa. The Soriana series consists of a sofa in two sizes, a lounge chair and a chaise lounge.

The Soriana lounge chair in Look Bianco with a chrome frame is part of our quick ship program. Please inquire.

Tobia + Afra Scarpa

As a husband and wife team, Tobia and Afra Scarpa created interiors and furniture that embrace the materials of each design; they paid particular attention to technology and aesthetics. Tobia was born in Venice, Italy in 1935, and is the son of Carlo Scarpa. Afra Bianchin was born in Montebelluna, Italy in 1937. Both attended the University luav di Venezia, graduating with architectural degrees in 1957. Carlo worked as a glass designer for Murano glassworks from 1957-1960. Together, the Scarpas opened their own design office in Afra’s hometown in 1960. They collaborated with industrial design manufacturers throughout their careers, including work with B&B Italia, San Lorenzo Silver, Knoll International, Gavina, Cassina, Meritalia, Flos, Fabbian, and Veas. Their design work encompasses architecture, interior design, furniture, clothing, and art glass.
