Maralunga 50 Sofa by Vico Magistretti for Cassina

Designed in the 1970s and awarded the Compasso d’Oro in 1979, the Maralunga sofa immediately became an icon and had great impact on the international scene. Designed to celebrate the inclusion of its author, Vico Magistretti, in the iMaestri collection, Maralunga 50 is an exclusive edition, faithful to the original model of this furniture piece offered in Nubuck leather colour Maralunga 50, a celebratory shade of red. Maralunga 50 maintains intact the innovation of the original model – the headrest that can be raised or lowered to adjust the backrest, thanks to a mechanism made from a simple bicycle chain. To pay homage to the great Milanese architect, Cassina dresses the armchair and the sofa, available in two- and three-seat versions, in a shade of red very dear to him – red was, in fact, a constant throughout Magistretti’s life and career, starting with the socks he wore on a regular basis, until it became a symbol of his nonconformity in the world of design. Framed by special stitching that outlines its silhouette, the generous proportions of Maralunga 50, upholstered in Nubuck, accentuate the comfort of the model and highlight the timeless beauty of its design.
