Mario Bellini "Camaleonda" Sofa, 1970s Vintage Mid Century Modular Sofa in Light Camel Boucle, C&B Italia


This 1970s vintage Mario Bellini "Camaleonda" mid-century modular sofa is a 1970s original produced by C&B Italia and has been meticulously reupholstered in a light camel boucle fabric. The new upholstery is durable with a subtle texture and the neutral color is adaptable to a multitude of interiors. A portmanteau of the Italian words “camaleonte” (chameleon) and “onda” (wave), Bellini's idea was to create a sofa that can be be endlessly recombined to form new shapes depending on the mood or changing needs of the user. Available as a set of four pieces, this modular sofa embodies the essence of mid-century modernism with its innovative design and luxurious materials. The modular structure is made from plywood and polyurethane foam and includes the signature tie rods and rings which allow the modules to be hooked and unhooked to combine into new shapes and designs. This particular model features an additional smaller piece at the end of the sofa which can also be used as an ottoman (as shown in the last image). A maker's mark is featured on the underside of the sofa.
