Sail Out Sofa
The Sail Out Sofa, designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Cassina, offers extreme comfort thanks to SoloSoff® padding, a blown polyester fiber, and memory foam-based product. Featuring single bands with removable padding inserted in individually stitched pockets, Sail Out recalls the soft form of blow-up fabric bed.
Sail Out offers an infinite variety of combinations thanks to the three seating modules available in either 5, 6 or 7 bands as well as three additional elements featuring a teak side table and armrest/backrest, available in two heights. All modules are interchangeable thanks to a joint mechanism on the teak panels reminiscent of car headrests.
The collection is completed with a round pouf, in two sizes, consisting of segments that converge towards a little hidden hole designed to drain off water.
As a designer, Rodolfo Dordoni has created a career of collaboration, through designing furniture and objects for the home with a wide array of companies. Born in Milan in 1954, Dordoni graduated with a degree in architecture from Milan Polytechnic. He soon began designing for Artemide, working on their glass collection; eventually becoming their art director. Dordoni then transitioned to working for Cappellini from 1979 - 1989. He has since created lines for or work directly with Cassina, Minotti, Flos, Dornbracht, Fontana Arte, Moroso, Roda, and Venini. In 2005 he created his own architecture firm, Dordoni Archietti, which focuses on architectural planning, interior design, and exhibit design. His work is often considered to be simple and intuitive; much of his design process goes beyond the object itself and focuses on the marketing campaign that will feature the piece or line.
