George N. Marshmallow Sofa

The artistic Marshmallow Sofa by George N. is a breakthrough in 20th century design and is still highly sought-after today. This historic piece was created in 1956, and is considered to be one of the first furniture manifestations of Pop Art. Created from 18 round, comfortable cushions the sofa was a pioneer of the new concepts in soft seating. With his strong architectural background, George N. followed the established principles of proportion and balance, creating a visually unique and at the same time practical piece. The Marshmallow Sofa is one of the landmarks of modern design that has impressed style and design critics alike.

ItaliaDesigns produces the unique design with 18 circular cushions in classic or premium leather. They float on the frame and form a wonderfully comfortable seat. The cushions are detachable, enabling easy cleaning. The Marshmallow Sofa is available in a range of colours.

About the Designer

George N.

George N.

George Nelson (1908-1986) was, together with Charles & Ray Eames, one of the founding fathers of American modernism. We like to think of George Nelson as "The Creator of Beautiful and Practical Things". George Nelson was part of a generation of architects that found too few projects and turned successfully toward product, graphic and interior design. Based in Rome he travelled through Europe where he met a number of the modernist pioneers. A few years later he returned to the U.S.A. to devote himself to writing. Through his writing in "Pencil Points" he introduced Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Gio Ponti to North America. At "Architectural Forum" he was first associate editor (1935- 1943) an later consultant editor (1944-1949). He defended sometimes ferociously the modernist principles and irritated many of his colleagues who as "industrial designers" made, according to Nelson too many concessions to the commercial forces in industry.
