A beautiful sofa designed around 1960 by William Katavolos. This is a 1990s production by ICF in Milano, Italy, who got the official license to produce these pieces after Laverne International.
The sofa has a high quality chrome plated frame with black lacquered metal supports. This creates a beautiful style that works really well with the brown leather upholstery, creating a nice modern style with a luxurious appearance. The original leather is in excellent condition, making this piece a truly amazing find! We have two matching chairs available, making this an incredible find that would truly draw the attention in any decor.
The sofa remains in excellent original condition! It has the manufacturer’s label on the frame.
William Katavolos’s career as an Avant Gardist spans 60 years, beginning in the late 1940s when, after giving up painting, he and fellow Pratt students Ross Littell and Douglas Kelley produced a furniture line including the “T” chair, which is now in the collection of MoMA and the Louvre. He went on in industrial design to conceive furniture collections for the legendary Laverne International, partition systems for Time-Life and Owens Corning, a suspension ring system for the Moscow Fair, and the Agricultural and Solar Pavilions for Salonika.
