for B&B Italia
The Saké Sofa Bed, by Piero Lissoni for B&B Italia, is a versatile and functional piece of furniture. Its clever design allows for easy transformation from a sofa to a comfortable double bed.
One of the critical features of the Saké Sofa Bed is the interchangeable armrests. The right or left armrest can be used as a headboard, providing added comfort and support when the sofa becomes a bed. This flexibility allows you to customize the orientation of the sofa to suit your preferences and space.
The Saké Sofa Bed combines functionality with elegant design, featuring clean lines and high-quality materials. Whether used as a sofa or a bed, it offers both style and comfort, making it a versatile and practical addition to any living space or guest room.
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.
