Camaleonda is an icon, rediscovered. First designed in 1970 by Mario Bellini, it was one of the first truly modular sofa designs, evolving through contemporary living rooms like a wonderfully soft wave. By hooking and unhooking seats, backrests and armrests, you can enjoy the luxury of changing your mind as many times as you desire, moving and redesigning the space. The concept is particularly dear to the designer, who states “Of all the objects I have designed, Camaleonda is perhaps the best in terms of its sense of freedom. There are an infinite number of possible configurations.”
The padding has been thoroughly updated by the B&B Italia's Research & Development Centre, making it even more comfortable than the original version. Thus the magical balance between the rigorous geometry of the square and the welcoming roundness of the padding is confirmed, further underlining the elasticity and tactile ergonomics that characterize many of Mario Bellini’s design projects.
