About the item:

A remarkable design by Marco Zanuso for Arflex Italy. Designed by the well-known Milan-based architect and designer Marco Zanuso (1916-2001), one of the pivotal designers part of the Italian “good design” modernist design movement during the 50s, 60s and 70s. Trained in architecture at the  Politecnico di Milano university, he opened his own design office in 1945. Zanuso designed for many manufacturers, both furniture and non-furniture. Several of the most important designs by Zanuso was for Arflex, the furniture division of Pirelli tire company set up in 1948. His first design was the Antropus chair in 1949, followed in 1951 by the infamous Lady chair and sofa. The equally known Triennale sofa was introduced in 1952, followed in 1954 by the “Sleep-O-Matic” variant. By the late 50s, early 60s, Zanuso designed the Regent series and Mi-Lord lounge series, the latter featuring a rosewood multiplex frame with separate upholstered cushions and a rubber based underlay for the seating part. This Mi-lord is one of the lesser known however one of his most iconic designs to date. In 1964, the Mi-Lord series was expanded with another variant called the Baronet. Featuring the same materials however with an altered frame design, the Baronet is most likely the most minimalistic variant and will look excellent in any modernist or contemporary interior.

This specific Baronet lounge sofa features a rosewood veneered multiplex frame with separate pillows in red Kvadrat Tonus. The fabric has been replaced in a later stage, for the rest the sofa is in an original condition, with the original rubber based underlay.

About its condition 

The sofa has discolouration visible between the 2 outer edges on the frame. One outer edge still has its original colour likely because it has been standing next to a wall so it hasn’t been affected by the sunlight. Other than the discolouration, the frame is in full solid condition with some minor traces of use visible. The fabric and foam are in excellent condition and so is the underlay in rubber.
