Originally designed and launched in 1969 for the January 1970 annual Cologne Furniture Trade show by the Italian designer-couple Tobia and Afra Scarpa. The idea of the Soriana was to express a design where a whole bundle of fabric was encapsulated by a metal frame. It was a revolutionary and unique design and 50 years forward it is still one of the preferred sofa for some of the biggest designer and architects own homes or customer projects. The collection at the time was made of multiple single elements: a lounge chair, medium sofa and larger version sofa, chaise lounge with ottoman.
The Soriana collection was meant to express beauty and comfort by using a whole bundle of fabric held by a chrome-plated steel clamp. Kardiel's reproduction is enhanced using a black powder coated metal (instead of chrome) for today's modern interior. The "Soriana Chair" was the first piece designed in the collection and won the Compasso D'oro in 1969 for its design. Would fit well in a more eclectic Hollywood Regency inspired interior as in a more monochromatic Minimalist style decor.
