or Call to Order

In collab­o­ra­tion with Tobia Scarpa, Cassina brings the Soriana sofa back from its archives and reboots it, with the utmost respect for authen­tic­ity, by employ­ing envi­ron­men­tally friendly mate­ri­als to make it more actual than ever. Avail­able as a two or three-seater sofa, Soriana unites comfort with an informal style.

Defined by its curves, Soriana is wrapped with gener­ous chro­matic uphol­stery that is fixed with a giant metal brace to form relaxed creases around its entire body. The piece’s aesthet­ics are further enriched by a quilted effect created with uphol­stered buttons, both on the seat and backrest cushions.

Soriana main­tains the same design concept and char­ac­ter­is­tic aesthetic allure while its construc­tion and mate­ri­als have been completely rede­vel­oped for an eco-friendly version. The seat’s padding is 100% recy­cled blown fibre produced from PET recov­ered from Plastic Bank®. 

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 three seat sofa 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.
