This iconic adjustable sofa designed comes with two flexible wings can also be used as a bed. Re-designed by Carlo Mollino for the Teatro Regio, Torino. It is newly upholstered with high-quality leather and gives a perfect contrast to the base in black enameled steel. Borsani was strongly working with Milan artists such as Lucio Fontana, Agenore Fabbri, Arnaldo and Gio Pomodoro. In the 50s Osvaldo Borsani started his own company named Tecno, where he realized numerous designs in industrial production. Both made him a relevant position in Italian Design, shared with Marco Zanuso and Mario Gottardi. His influence on 50s and 60s innovative office and system furniture can not be underestimated.
