About the Designer
Furniture designer and architect, Vico Magistretti was born in 1920 in Milan, Italy. His award-winning career includes international bestsellers like the Carimate Chair (1959), Maralunga Sofa (1973), Oluce Lamp (1977), and Nuvola Rossa Shelf (1977). Today, his legacy endures in interiors and museum collections worldwide.
Forty-five years after the launch of the original, the Maralunga Sofa by Vico Magistretti for Cassina takes the stage once more, its proportions updated, and its look restyled, becoming even more elegant and comfortable than before. Maralunga 40 Maxi is a contemporary take on the legendary bestseller, which interestingly holds the technological patent for the device—a bicycle chain—that adjusts the angle of the backrest.
Supplied with the refined edge-stitching finish as standard, the two-seater sofa comes in at 214 cm, with the three-seater measuring 310 cm. The depth has increased to 105 cm, to make for a more inviting and comfortable sitting position; all the models are fitted with a feather-filled seat cushion in a new size to enhance ergonomic correctness.
