or Call to Order

Designer Carlo Colombo found his inspi­ra­tion for the Cap Martin Sunset sofas in the elegantly vintage atmos­pheres of the 1950’s. The elegance of the sofas is empha­sized by the arm rests, trimmed with double stitch­ing and gros-grain and equipped with concealed zippers. The loose pillows, with detach­able covers in leather and fabric, give the collec­tion a hint of relaxed infor­mal­ity which is also reflected in the slender tubular metal struc­ture, studied to make the seats appear extremely light.

The Cap Martin Sunset can be arranged into numer­ous layouts, thanks to the differ­ent modules avail­able: two and three-seaters, central and end units, chaise longue, a corner element and pouf.
