A 1990s “Bocca” sofa designed by Studio 65 and manufactured by Edra in Italy.
The Bocca Sofa, also known as the Lips Sofa, is a design icon that has gained international fame for its playful and provocative design. The sofa was originally created in 1970 by the Italian design collective Studio 65 for the Italian furniture brand Gufram. The bold and sensuous shape of the sofa was inspired by the sensual lips of movie star Mae West.
Upholstered in bold red fabric, the sofa exudes both playfulness and elegance. The sofa’s curvaceous form is both inviting and comfortable, making it an ideal statement piece for any living room or lounge.
The Bocca Sofa quickly became a symbol of pop art and post-modern design, representing a radical departure from the minimalist aesthetic of modernism. The sofa has been featured in numerous exhibitions and museums around the world, and has been widely imitated and copied by other designers.
In 1999, the production of the Bocca Sofa was taken over by the Italian furniture brand Edra, which only produced it untill 2000. The sofa remains a popular choice for those seeking a statement piece that combines art, design, and comfort.
The sofa remains in good, vintage condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. It has some repairs to the fabric.
