ILMARI TAPIOVAARA THREE-SEATER SOFA ITALY - 1960s
The rare three seat sofa by Finish designer Ilmari Tapiovaara for Paolo Anaboldi was a commission of the Italian manufacturer La Permanente Mobili Cantù in 1957. The production of this model was short and ceased in the 1960s. This mid-century design premiered at the “Seconda Mostra Selettiva e Concorso Internazionale del Mobile’” in Cantù, Italy in the same year, and won the gold medal for ‘Living Room Design’. It is easy to see why Tapiovaara’s design was generously awarded in Italy: from the leather support straps to the elegant brass details, this three-seater sofa has a modern, yet organic look paired with exquisite Italian craftsmanship in its execution.
