Price On Application

The Katana Sofa is an elegant sofa designed by Paolo Rizzatto and produced by Ghidini 1961. The Katana Sofa has a brass structure supporting a comfortable seat and enveloping back and armrests. The Katana is inspired by the iconic and seductive shapes of the classic Chesterfield, reinterpreted with renewed elegance; thanks to the gentle curves of its legs, the connection with the seat and the back is smooth and light-weighted. The Katana is ideal for both private and contract use.

The Katana Sofa is available in five versions - two, three, four seater and two corner seaters. These are 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 Katana collection comprises chairs, armchairs, benches and sofas with various sizes and upholstery options.
