Moov sofa is a sectional system that is highly versatile, both in terms of its shape and its affordable price-point. The comfortable seat slots smoothly into the back. Control the head-rest by folding up or down. The frame is characterized by a metal line that runs the entire length of the elements, highlighting the compact nature of the outer surfaces.
The system consists of several islands that can be linked to the sofas, which are available in three lengths and various compositions. Moov’s eclectic and contemporary mood is underlined by the fact that the sofa is offered in either an 85 or a 100-centimeter depth, making it fit even when space is at a premium.
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.
