The ‘Raymond’ Sofa has only been in the Gavina collection for a few years which makes it very rare, as specially in this large setup.
This sofa comes from a Belgian satellite ground station which was still furnished with only high-end 1960s and 1970s furniture.

After graduating from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1953, Kazuhide Takahama designed the Japanese Pavilion for the Milan Triennale. While supervising the installation, Takahama met Dino Gavina, who invited him to design for his design company, Gavina SpA. Over the next decade. Takahama introduced several designs through Gavina, including three lounge collections; Marcel, Raymond and Suzanne (named after Marcel Breuer and his brother and sister)
