sold / Erasmo sofa by Tobia and Afra Scarpa for B&B Italia, 1973


Teaming up as husband and wife, Tobia and Afra Scarpa envisioned furniture and entire interiors elaborating on latest innovations and embracing a wide range of materials. She was from Montebelluna, he from Venice, where they met and fell in love, both attending the Università LUAV di Venezia. In 1960 they started their own design office in Montebelluna and from there nothing but great success crossed their paths. Thorough research into the latest technological innovations providing them with new possibilities, brought them many fruitful collaborations with Gavina, Cassina, Knoll and B&B Italia amongst others. In 1973, they introduced the ‘Erasmo’ modular sofa to B&B, which gained instant popularity. The Erasmo sofa is that kind of sofa that embraces you and does not easily lets you leave its safe space.
