The iconic armchair Sofa With Arms designed in 1982 by the great Japanese designer Shiro Kuramata for Cappellini is back in the limelight with a brand new limited edition called Black Edition.
There are only 132 pieces in this edition (33 per colour), and they all have the same original design of the visible structure in metal tubing, but in the bold variant colour of charcoal.
Therefore, the tubular metal structure, the polyurethane foam padding and the fixed upholstery in fabrics and leathers from the collection all remain like in the previous version.
At the time of its launch, Sofa With Arms had won public approval with its dynamic lines and fine materials. It soon became an icon of the Cappellini collection, and was one of the first “manifestos” of contemporary style.
Its unique nature is completed by the innate elegance and simplicity typical of distinctive Japanese style.
Today, in its charcoal tubing variant, the armchair takes on even more value and promises a wide range of successes and acknowledgements.
