Postmodern Danube 850 3-seater sofa by Ettore Sottsass for Cassina 1992

About the item 

Very rare by one of the greatest Italian designers to date. Ettore Sottsass, known for his outlandish creative designs, is a very strong name in the design space. Many iconic designs came from his hand, the one design even toppling the other in terms of creativity and forms. His style can be best defined as a combination of (dramatic) surrealism, (post)modernism and memphis, all mixed together in one crazy unique style that defines Sottsass’ unique vision on design and reality in the broader sense.

Ettore has drawn many iconic designs for his own founded Memphis Group, where he was one of the founders of. One of his clients at a later stage was Cassina, for which he designed mostly in 70s, 80s and early 90s.

The Danube sofas are characterized by a blacked metal frame with coloured upholstered fabric to cover the side and back edges. The frame provides for a full sheltered seating position, providing for a bit of a love seat effect. The inside is upholstered with thick high quality leather zippered pillows with armrests on the outer edges. The entire sofa is built in typical Cassina fashion, very high quality.

This specific sofa features a petrol grey leather and blue inserts for the fabric.

About its condition 

The sofa is in very good condition, with some minor wear on the fabric inserts and metal frame. The leather is in excellent condition.
