Cassina’s “8” Otto Sofa, lounge, and sectional seating system by Piero Lissoni translate to a furniture collection that is designed for versatile configurations. As a unique play on words, the number eight is pronounced “otto” in Italian. The Otto Sofa has quickly become one of Cassina’s most versatile seating groups that include a two-seat and three-seat sofas, a lounge chair, and a vast array of modular sectional components – multi-seat, chaises, along with center and corner elements. The Otto sofa’s slim rectilinear profile is composed of a frame of expertly upholstered panels into which cushions for the seat, back, and arms – all feature additional feather padding that just exudes comfort.
An Italian architect, art director and product designer, Piero Lissoni began his foray into architecture and design when he opened Studio Lissoni in 1986, which soon transformed to Lissoni Associati to encompass his architecture work. With an eye for all aspects of design, Lissoni pays particular care and attention to the human scale and how people interact with space and the pieces placed within a room. His work embraces the minimalism of modern design and is understated in both form and style. Lissoni’s work reaches beyond furniture, lighting, and architecture, as he has an eye for graphic design, packaging, and signage for various projects. Currently, he designs for Cassina, B&B Italia, Cappellini, and Flos. He is also the design director for Living Diviani.
