The design manifesto born from the wishes of Osvaldo Borsani. 


An item of furniture which is original, autonomous and elegant in form, but technical and industrial in production.  

D70 sofa, thanks to the way the soft parts adapt to the shape of the body and to its functionality, become strikingly harmonious in form and extremely comfortable too, perfect for home, office and reception areas.

Technological mechanism

The D70 has two pivoting wings, a metal frame, polyurethane foam filling, and fabric or leather upholstery. The mechanism allows the sofa to be opened out until it completely reverses - an iconic design solution which allows the backrest to open to any angle, even to make a bed.


Timeless elegance

When the sofa was first presented as a “patented divan-bed” at the Exhibition of individual furniture items in the 10th Triennale Exhibition in 1954, it emblemised the fresh direction taken by the newly formed Tecno.
