About this vintage design furniture

Two-seater "Mantilla" sofa, designed by Kazuhide Takahama for Studio Simon in 1973. It is made of wood and polyurethane foam structure, with white velvet upholstery. Kazuhide Takahama called it "Mantilla" since the fabric covers the sofa like a mantel (fireplace). The transient expression due to the velvet that seems to rest loosely on the couch creates a dynamic look. By pure chance, the fabric appears to be draped over the sofa. The lines structure the surface and make a play of shadows. Kazuhide Takahama (1930-2010) was a Japanese designer born in Mijasaki, Japan. After graduating from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1953, Kazuhide Takahama designed the Japanese Pavilion for the Milan Triennale. Here he met Dino Gavina, and over the next decade, Takahama created several pieces for Gavina. Later, he also collaborated with B&B Italia, Simon, and Knoll, just to name a few. Takahama’s designs are clearly in line and shape and have a high-quality design. With the functionalist approach to modernism, he designed with a Japanese sense of material and aesthetics conveniently combined with Western elements. Excellent vintage condition.
