or Call to Order

The Borea outdoor sofa features a seam­less tubular metal frame creat­ing a uniquely stun­ning fluid­ity. Piero Lissoni’s design is unin­ter­rupted by joints and instead utilizes a metal bending process, typi­cally used in the aero­nau­ti­cal sector. Borea sofa comes in two and three-seater versions with gener­ous cush­ions, which are not only soft and relax­ing but were also devel­oped to be sustain­able. 100% poly­ester fiber from recy­cled PET plastic bottles make up Boreas’ padding. The entire collec­tion is unmis­tak­ably stylish and sustain­ably made, genuinely bring­ing relaxation outdoors.

Piero Lissoni

Italy

Industrial but playful might sound like a contradiction, but in the hands of Piero Lissoni, it makes perfect sense. The Italian architect and designer has become one of the most accomplished of his generation, with collaborations with everyone from Alessi to Flos to Tecno. After training as an architect at the prestigious Politecnico di Milano University, Lissoni formed his own firm to create witty takes on modernism’s clean lines.

In 1996, he launched a visual communication agency, Graph.x, followed 17 years later by Lissoni Architettura, which handles interior design projects. But Lissoni’s furnishings really show off his charm: his Otto seating system for Cassina, named for the way the numeral is pronounced in Italian, tosses a titular number of comfy cushions into a slim aluminum rectangle for a perfect blend of hard and soft. And his Extrasoft system for Living Divani tosses away the frame entirely. It’s a chic take on the kid’s bedroom favorite, the beanbag, but with a lifetime’s worth of possible arrangements.
