Carlo Bartoli embraced new materials in his career as an architect and designer, most notably in his 4875 chair for Kartell in 1974, which was the first to be constructed from polypropylene. Bartoli is also renowned for the clarity and innovation of his design: his work is kept in the permanent collection of MoMA and the Pompidou Centre. His love for curvilinear forms is taken to new levels in his ‘Down’ sofas, which have a pneumatic aura and are correspondingly comfortable. As the name implies, these have super squishy down cushions.
Sofa upholstered in the original leather, which has been recently restored. One large chip remains at the base of the left hand side arm of the larger sofa.
