Carlo Scarpa for Simon, 'Cornaro' sofa, wood, fabric, Italy, 1973

The 'Cornaro' sofa by Carlo Scarpa is a perfect example of the Ultrarazionale style, breaking away from the strict limits of Rationalism, resulting in a sofa with a solid hardwood structure and one-unit side and back cushion fastened to the frame corners. The sofa has very thick cushions and is upholstered with a bright fabric. The sofa has relatively thin back and armrests compared to the seat. The frame is made out of a thick round wooden basket that holds the cushions together. This sofa is large and comfortable and creates a shell around the sitter.

Please note that the shown photos function as an example. Reupholstery is necessary and possible in any fabric you prefer.

Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) is known as a virtuoso of light, a master of detail and a connoisseur of materials. He is most well-known for his architectural projects, counting 58 in total. Most famous are the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona, the Olivetti showroom in Venice and the Brion Tomb in San Vito d’Altivole. His lush use of decorative aspects and crafted details are still unrivalled. His designs show very clear traits of Scarpa’s aesthetic language that holds the middle between Japanese minimalism and organic forms of nature.
