The Costela (Rib) chairs and sofas by Carlo Hauner and Martin Eisler became an instant success after their introduction in the Brazilian market, and it wasn’t for long that production was partly moved to Europe to meet the growing demand there.
The sofa here for sale has been produced under license in Italy during the 1960s by Forma Moveis, Brescia IT.
