Marenco armchair and sofa from Poliform

Arflex makes contemporary furniture that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. The Marenco is an armchair and sofa designed in 1970 by Italian architect Mario Marenco. Today it is the most photographed sofa in the Arflex group. Its distinctive design makes it a true statement piece. This re-issue is also a favourite of Pritzker prize-winning architect Tadao Ando, who features the Marenco in almost every house he designs.

Still coveted today for their soft minimalism, both the sofa and armchair feature a revolutionary system to assemble the seat and armrest cushions to the base. The cushions are put into a metal tubular frame, which grants rigidity and resistance.
