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 founders of the American Modernism movement. We like to think of George Nelson as "The Creator of Beautiful and Practical Things". George Nelson was from a generation of architects who found too few projects and turned successfully toward product, graphic and interior design.

Based in Rome, Nelson met several of the pioneers of modernism while travelling in Europe. Upon returning to the US some years later, he turned 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) and later consultant editor (1944-1949). He defended, sometimes ferociously, the modernist principles and irritated many of his "industrial designer" colleagues who, according to Nelson, bowed too easily to the commercial forces in industry.
