Price On Application

The Dodo Sofa is an elegant sofa designed by Stefano Giovannoni and produced by Ghidini 1961. Dodo (also called Frame 2) is an evolution of the Frame Sofa: it adopts the same extruded aluminium frame but combines it with a different joint and feet base. The supporting frame brushes the floor without touching it, while the generous height of the seat cushions provides great comfort. The Dodo is ideal for both private and contract use.

The Dodo Sofa comes in two sizes (two-seater and three-seater) and is available in a large selection of upholstery and multiple metal finishes. Please see the Ghidini Materials and Finishes Catalogue under the Features tab and contact us for more information. 

The Dodo Collection includes various sofas, armchairs and cushions.

Stefano Giovannoni lives and works in Milan. He graduated in architecture at the University of Florence and since then he has been focusing on the world of home accessories and kitchenware. Stefano has collaborated with companies like Alessi, Amore Pacific, Cedderoth, Deborah, Fiat, Hannstar, Hansemm, Helit, Henkel, Honeywell, Kokuyo, Inda, Laufen, Lavazza, LG Hausys, Magis, Mika-kuto, NTT Docomo, Oras, Oregon Scientific , Pepsico, Pulsar, Samsung, Seiko, Siemens, Sodastream, 3M, Telecom, Toto, Veneta Cucine, and many others. Some of Stefano's collections, such as the Girotondo collection (over 10 million units sold), the Mami, the  "FFF" series for Alessi, the Alessi-one bathroom ware, and the Bombo family for Magis, remain milestones in the world of design.
