'Tatlin' Center Round Sofa by Mario Cananzi and Roberto Semprini for Edra, 2002

US$5,900Asking Price

About

This wild and amazing Postmodern 'Tatlin' center sofa was designed by Mario Cananzi and Roberto Semprini and produced by Edra in 2002. Covered in a sumptuous red velvet fabric over a steel and wood frame, this high quality and substantially sized circular settee is unique and can be the perfect fit for many design applications. The retail price for a new Tatlin sofa is over $16,000, making this a substantial savings while acquiring an early production original example that comes with matching loose cushions. Based on the Tatlin tower, the Tatlin tête-à-tête sofa with its TOTEM structure is suitably placed at the center of any living space. Taken from Edra's website: "Sofa for the center place in the room loosely based on the Tatlin tower, emblem of Constructivism. A modern TOTEM, perfect also for public spaces. It allows new possibilities of seating, offering room for more people. A true work of architecture. A real Edra icon." This example was previously owned by a major Hollywood prop house that supplied designer items for top TV Shows and Movies. The upside to this is this center sofa has graced the buttocks of many a Hollywood celebrities and when you are watching your favorite shows and movies you may see your sofa on the screen. The downside is that the loose cushions have inventory numbers written along a seam in black marker. It is barely noticeable only on close inspection. We have not attempted to clean these off, they may be cleanable. This elegant 'Tatlin' center round loveseat would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an Apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Consider using as a side chair, cafe or breakfast table chair, bedside chair, fireside chair, dressing or changing room chair, hallway chair, entryway or mudroom chair, nursing or reading chair, conference room chair, office or desk chair, guest chair, lobby chair, lounge chair or occasional chair ideal in virtually any setting. Measurements: H 53" x W 82.5" x D 69" Seat height 17.5" Condition: Good vintage condition with light wear throughout. Sturdy and structurally sound. Ready to be used immediately.
