Vintage Magistretti Maralunga Chair - Sold


Designed by Vico Magistretti for Castelli in the 1970's, the Maralunga Chair is a vintage seating treasure. It encompasses the design philosophy of the era with its bulbous proportions and sculptural form. Maralunga's real innovation, however, is the back support that can be folded up into a head rest, thanks to the insertion of a simple bicycle chain embedded in the foam and an avant-garde mechanism patented by Cassina.

Vico Magistretti drew the Maralunga Sofa for the first time in 1973 and its production began the following year, in 1974. It immediately became a recognized and appreciated industrial design object both in Italy and around the world: in 1979 the Maralunga won the Compasso d’Oro award and in 1981 it became part of the MoMa collection in New York.
