The History of the Camaleonda Sofa

The Camaleonda sofa was originally created in 1970 by internationally renowned architect and designer Mario Bellini. It quickly became known for its unique design—its seats, backrests, and armrests can be hooked and unhooked at will, which means that it can be rearranged in unlimited ways according to the owner’s preference.

Even the name itself lives up to the sofa's design and functionality. According to Bellini, "Camaleonda is a name that I invented by mixing two words: the first is the name of an extraordinary animal, the chameleon (camaleonte in Italian), that can adapt to the environment around it and the word 'onda', wave, that indicates the curve of the sea and the desert. Both these words describe the shape and function of this sofa."

Initially, the Camaleonda was only on the market for eight years. But in 2020, furniture company B&B Italia collaborated with Bellini to reissue it. Now, this iconic modular sofa is a highly sought after piece. It can be seen in the homes of several famous personalities, including model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen. It has also been featured in the stores of high-end fashion brands like Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney.
