Shiro Kuramata Velvet Sofa with Arms Black Edition for Cappellini, Exclusive

US$3,180per item


Sofa with arms Black Edition is a limited edition of the unforgettable armchair sofa with arms designed by Shiro Kuramata in 1982. This iconic product was designed with a chromed structure and seat / backrest in woolen cloth in bright colors, to furnish the showrooms and offices of fashion designer Issey Miyake. The synergy in the use of colors and materials between these two great designers has always been very strong. Just think of Kuramata's use of a lively multi-color terrace for floors and tables in the Miyake spaces or the beautiful perfume bottle he designed. To celebrate this partnership, Cappellini has decided to produce an edition of 33-piece each of the armchair with an anthracite metal frame and velvet covering in four brilliant colors. Blue, green, magenta and alchemilla that immediately recall the clothes of the famous fashion designer. Sofa with arms Black Edition is ready to become a cult object to collect, like many other Cappellini limited editions. Small armchair with tubular metal structure, anthracite color matte varnished; polyurethane foam padding. Fixed cover in velvet, available in 4 different colors: blue, green, magenta and alchemilla.
