The Maralunga sofa by Magistretti for Cassina was designed in 1973 and quickly became a design classic. Its clever design incorporates manipulatable back cushions that can sit low, directly behind the user when seated, or extended up to provide the user with more upper back and neck support. Magistretti was an Italian industrial designer and architect. This is an original seventies era version, produced in 1973, and recently reupholstered in a pale tan aniline leather which is very tactile and buttery soft to the touch. It is in very good condition, with a few faint marks in the leather and a small crack in the plastic on the left foot that is barely visible.
