Tito Agnoli lounge sofa for Mobilia Italy 1961





Rare lounge sofa designed by Tito Agnoli and manufactured by Mobilia in Itay in 196. This sofa was made in very limited quantities. Its structure is made from rosewood and the sofa is reupholstered with a white bouclé. Its armrests flow fluidly like waves making it have a soft and inviting appearance. There’s a beautiful contrast between the materials used. The sofa upholstery on the seat and back is divided into three segments by two linings. The most eye-catching element of this sofa is its legs. They run the entire height of the front and back. It’s a clever play on point of view by Agnoli. Additionally the legs have a subtle double edge detail at the bottom and a slight bend at the back.

Tito Agnoli was born into an Italian family, in Lima, Peru, in 1931. He came to Italy after the war. Trained as a painter (having studied with Sironi), in 1949 he enrolled in the Faculty of Architecture, where he graduated in 1959 and was assistant to Gio Ponti and to Carlo De Darli. However, even in the early Fifties, he was already carrying out an intense professional activity in the field of design. He has created projects for, among others, Arflex, Cinova, Lema, Matteo Grassi, Molteni, Montina, Oluce, Pierantonio Bonacina, Poltrona Frau, Schiffini, Ycami. Several times recommended for the Compasso d’Oro (Golden Compass) Award, in 1986 he won the gold medal at the Neocon in Chicago. Some of his pieces are kept in the permanent collection of the MoMa in New York. He died in Milan on February 2012.
