Description A beautiful and rare seating set, a two-seater sofa and lounge chair, model “Vivalda”, designed by Claudio Salocchi and manufactured by Sormani in Italy, circa 1960.

The frame of this unique piece is made of white painted wood with integrated armrests in elegant curved shapes that are highly recognizable for the design! They are upholstered in high quality black fabric, creating a very decorative contrast to the frame as well as a sense of luxury. The slightly tilted seats and backs add to a very nice seating comfort. This is an iconic set of Italian midcentury design that would make a wonderful eyecatcher in any interior.

The sizes of the sofa are W. 136 x D. 82 x H. 75 (SH. 40) cm
The sizes of the chair are W. 72 x D. 82 x H. 75 (SH. 40) cm

The set remains in very good condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving an outstanding patina.

Claudio Salocchi (Milan, 1934–2012) was an Italian Industrial and furniture designer and architect. He graduated as an architect at the Politecnico di Milano. Claudio Salocchi produced numerous furniture and lighting designs, and, in parallel, spent much time and effort researching different applications of aluminum alloys, optimizing furniture and layout heights for work and home environments, and using new and unfamiliar configurations that would not compromise the practicality of the piece.
