GIOVANNI OFFREDI FOR SAPORITI “WAVE” TWO-SEATER SOFA
Italian, circa 1970s, unmarked
Item # 802BCY24A
Designed in 1974, this is an inordinately high quality design by Giovanni Offredi for retail by Saporiti in Italy and remains available as one of the classic pieces in their active collection. Executed in anodized brushed steel with a host of beautifully machined elements, the form is distinctly architectural with an inordinately angular frame made relaxed with its curvy and incredibly comfortable “wave” seat. It retains its original patterned suede covering and remains deeply stuffed with an injected polyurethane cushion. The upholstered elements lift easily from the frame on a machined steel pintle (shown lifted from its well in the leftward facing image) to make moving the piece a simple and safe task.
Measurements: 75” W x 37 1/4” D x 28” H, 14 1/2” H to seat
Spots of stain and discoloration to suede covering. One white plastic foot pad missing.
