or Call to Order

The Dock sofa system by Piero Lissoni is a haven in the home. The shape is based around a solid plat­form that supports an eclec­tic compo­si­tion that spans hori­zon­tally. The plat­form is a dynamic element, extend­ing the entire length to form a base. The narrower armrest is avail­able in two depth sizes and is gener­ously padded like the back­rest. The cush­ions play with sizes and propor­tions, making it possi­ble to create double-sided, corner, and chaise longue compo­si­tions, with or without back­rests suit­able for the center of the room or more traditional settings. 

The Dock sofa system can also be devel­oped verti­cally and equipped with acces­sories that create a varied land­scape. It is, in fact, possi­ble to insert extra elements between the seat cush­ions, such as comfort­able padded armrests, while slender service elements can be placed on the plat­form. These support­ing elements for the body and objects provide further choices for a visual rhythm, giving addi­tional possi­bil­i­ties to expe­ri­ence and conceive the system. The armrest and seat cush­ions have elegant tone-on-tone stitching. 

The comfort­able soft padding creates a peace­ful harbor, which can be further defined by select­ing from differ­ent depths and either a 16 – 1/8″ or a lower 10 – 3/4″ seat height. 

After spend­ing some time on Dock, you can leave the port and set sail for unfa­mil­iar places, rested, and refreshed.

Piero Lissoni

Italy (1956)

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.
