this is a snapshot blog of:

throwaway sofa

So called ‘throw away sofa’ designed in 1965 by Willie Landels for italian design label Zanotta. According to the website of Connox ‘its name is today not understandable literally and hearkens that the original used foam was so cheap, that a new cover of the furniture would not be payable, and that one could throw it away and buy a new sampler’. Price of a new version is about 2500 euro yet the price of this vintage one is 1375 euro at Rotterdam design store Beljon.
