SOFO Armchair is a seat to place in a row, like a train, or to stack to build solid, colorful mountains. It is simply a block made with an S-shaped cut from a cube of polyurethane, covered with fabric featuring two large stripes. The result of a very simple operation, without wasted material or thought. It presents itself as a compact, abstract, colorful object that communicates the joy of living, like things that arrive from another world.

History of Superstudio:
Founded in Florence in 1967 and composed of Adolfo Natalini, Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, Roberto Magris, Piero Frassinelli, Alessandro Magris and Alessandro Poli, this revered group carried out theoretic research into design, worked in the field of architecture with exhibitions and constructions, and was active in the field of design with furniture and domestic objects. From 1971-1973, the group produced didactic films and utopian projects on “fundamental” acts, seeking a philosophical and anthropological rethinking of architecture, some of which were presented in the groundbreaking 1972 exhibition “Italy: the New Domestic Landscape “ at the MoMA of New York.
