From design to product

The sensation of an enveloping embrace relished in a relaxing situation. This is the evocative image that inspired the designer in conceptualising a sofa whose intent is instinctively intuited: the continuity of overlapping horizontal bands defining the armrests and backrest, integrating structure and stuffing, with a slight inclination that indulges the body and provides ample support even without cushions, the backrest and seat returning to easily accessible and harmonious proportions.

“The complete collection of modular sofas has been developed with great care and attention to detail. The most evident aspect is the limited utilisation of visible stitching, in favour of covering exteriors carefully folded around the stuffing. The generous and slightly ‘puffy’ volumes seem to fluctuate above the aluminium alloy legs, engineered to support the structure. The slender feet have been designed with a minimalist touch so as to draw focus on the soft body above.”
