Created by Verner Panton in 1969, Cloverleaf sofa is a striking work. It was presented in 1970 for the legendary Visiona 2 exhibition in Cologne, the concept of modular sofa highlights the genius of Verner Panton. Cloverleaf suggests a new way of living space. Playfully walking the line between sensuous seating sculpture and modular pragmatism, the full design master piece is composed by different elements. The idea behind was (and obviously is) to assemble forms to get different shapes.
