Bastiano Leather Sofa & Coffee Table by Tobia & Afra Scarpa for Knoll, 1960s
This wide and grand example of the Bastiano sofa was designed by Tobia & Afra Scarpa in 1962 and produced by Knoll. The two-seater sofa features thick sienna brown leather. The basket frame is made from stained wood, which displays a beautiful grain, showing a variety of shades and movement in the wood. The sofa is very comfortable as it has thick cushions that fall into the frame. The frame functions as a basket that holds the thick, comfortable cushions together. The back of this piece is linear, making this sofa ideal for placing centrally in a space to be best appreciated. The matching coffee table is made of stained wood in the same shade and was also designed by Tobia & Afra Scarpa for Knoll.
