Italy, 1911 – 1985
Architect and designer
Beautiful D70 daybed/sofa designed by Osvaldo Borsani D70 and manufactured by Tecno in Italy in 1954. This comfortable daybed/sofa is truly unique. What sets it apart is the special mechanism that allows you to adjust the angles between the seat and backrest, even making them completely reversible. It’s a clever design that offers many different positions, transforming it into a bed within seconds. The sofa has been reupholstered in a lovely petrol blue fabric by Danish producer Gabriel, perfectly matching the style of the original sofa. It looks stunning and feels great to sit or lie on. You can identify its authenticity by the Tecno sticker on the frame and brass tags on the sides.
The smart opening mechanism, operated with a practical knob, lets you find the most comfortable position. It’s like having a sofa and a bed all in one! Originally designed to meet a customer’s specific needs – to enjoy the view from a window and relax by the fireplace – this patented sofa-bed was showcased at the 10th Triennale Exhibition in 1954. With its stylish design and fantastic functionality, the Osvaldo Borsani D70 Daybed/Sofa remains a timeless classic, perfect for any home, lounge, or office space. It’s an impressive piece that combines comfort, versatility, and elegance in one outstanding package.
Like all our upholstered pieces these can also be newly upholstered to your admiration. Ask our experienced upholstery department for an affordable quote for the item you want customised. We only use the best quality fabrics, foam, and materials for all our items. With the reupholstery we will always keep the originality in mind so the piece doesn’t lose its value and will be ready for years of use again.
