by Ghidini 1961
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 four versions - two, three, four seater and a corner two seater - please make your choice amongst the Size option above.
The Katana is available in various types of upholstery and structure finishes and is part a collection of products designed by Paolo Rizzatto for Ghidini 1961. Please make your selection amongst the Upholstery and the Structure Finish options above.
The Katana collection comprises chairs, armchairs, benches and sofas with various sizes and upholstery options.
