Soriana takes its shape from the grip of a metal structure that wraps it.
The seating comprises two different sized sofas, a chaise-longue and pouf.
Soriana was originally designed in 1969 by Afra and Tobia Scarpa for Cassina, and the seating won the Compasso d'Oro, a prestigious design award in 1970 for its complex design achieved using simple tools.
Together with Tobia Scarpa, Cassina has reissued Soriana. The seat is padded with 100 per cent recycled blown fibre made from Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) recovered from non-profit enterprise Plastic Bank.
The updated design is part of Cassina LAB, a project by Cassina which aims to promote wellbeing and sustainable design.
