This large leather ‘Strips’ sofa was designed by China Boeri in 1968 and manufactured by Arflex in Italy. The main characteristic of this sofa is the loose removable quilted cover, which reproduces the feel and look of a down filled cushion. The cover is made from a high-quality anthracite leather which is in very good condition and the piece sits on a very low chromed base. The ’Strips’ sofa is one of the most famous products of Arflex. Designed in 1968, it was awarded the prize Compasso d’Oro and it is displayed in several museums in the world, for example, the Triennale in Milan and Tokyo, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Born in 1924 in Milan, Cini Boeri is an award-winning industrial designer, architect, and interior designer. Along with Gae Aulenti, she was one of the few female Italian designers to enjoy international success in the postwar era. Her work has consistently underscored the psychological connection between humans and their environment.
