SUPERONDA STRIPES
Dynamic sofa designed by Archizoom Associati
Special edition designed by Andrea Branzi

Poltronova pays tribute to Superonda —an anti—design iconic piece of furniture that fully preserves its outrageously playful nature— by calling on all members of the Radical team to design a new, celebrative outfit for the six Superonda Specials. «My version of the Superonda is similar to the one made the night before the “Superarchitettura” exhibition. It was hammered together by Paolo Deganello until three in the morning. On the floor directly beneath our studio in Villa Strozzi slept the building’s owner, Countess Gambinossi. At first we were careful not to make any noise, so as not to wake her, but in the end… Deganello swung his hammer without restraint at this Superonda, which had become a sort of drum. It was made from wood and painted by hand in wide, brightly-coloured stripes. And while we drove to the exhibition in Pistoia with the Superonda… at a certain point we were overtaken by a small truck, off which a period sofa fell onto the road… an omen perhaps?» [Andrea Branzi]
