The return of an icon 

with a vision for the future  

 

Soriana is still today one of the most coveted pieces of furniture for interior design projects around the  world. In collaboration with Tobia Scarpa, Cassina brings this collectors’ icon back from its archives  and reboots it, with the utmost respect for authenticity, by employing environmentally friendly  materials to make it more actual than ever.  

 

Chromatic combinations for an award-winning design  

A true style icon, Soriana was designed in 1969 by Afra and Tobia Scarpa and awarded a Compasso  d’Oro prize the following year. Defined by its abundant curves, Soriana is wrapped with generous  upholstery that is fixed with a giant metal brace to form relaxed creases around its entire body. The  piece’s aesthetics are further enriched by a quilted effect created with upholstered buttons, both on the  seat and backrest cushions. 

Cassina has now introduced a selection of chromatic combinations that match lush fabrics and soft  leathers with a black, blue, burgundy, green and white painted metal frame. To meet the demands of the  fans of the original version, it will also be available with a chrome brace. 

Available as an armchair, chaise-longue, a two or three-seater sofa and pouf, Soriana’s unites comfort  with an informal style. 

 

A conscious evolution   

In the 1960s and 1970s, Cassina was pioneering in the way that it experimented with innovative materials to create new forms and industrially develop its designs with the most advanced solutions. The company advances this avant-garde approach to reflect and reconsider the role of innovation today, listening to the needs of the surrounding society to propose new production methods and materials.   

Soriana still today maintains the same design concept and characteristic aesthetic allure while its construction and materials have been completely redeveloped for an eco-friendly version that has the aim of creating a lower environmental impact and a higher level of comfort thanks to the work carried out by Cassina LAB, the collaboration between the Cassina Research and Development Centre and Poli. design at the Milan Polytechnic. 

The original, polyurethane structure of this version has been completely substituted with a series of bags filled with microspheres made from BioFoam®, the first patented foam to have an organic base made from biopolymers produced from natural resources. This material is hardwearing and suitable for long-term use while it is also biodegradable and can be industrially composted.   

The seat’s comfort is further heightened thanks to a 100% recycled blown fibre padding produced from  PET recovered from Plastic Bank®. Thanks to the involvement of local communities, plastic is collected before it reaches the sea, favouring a conscious and circular economy. The same material is also used for the lining’s padding which is wrapped around the structure like a soft quilt. 

"Soriana is a breath of essential relaxation." Tobia Scarpa, 2021. 

This project is part of a larger mission to recover and safeguard the works of Tobia Scarpa.
