or Call to Order

The SAKé seating system signals the begin­ning of Piero Lissoni’s collab­o­ra­tion with B&B Italia. The design begins from a strongly contem­po­rary seating system distin­guished by a careful search for formal balance. Seats avail­able in three sizes with embrac­ing or linear backs and arms of various dimen­sions added harmo­niously to create a sofa adapted to the customer’s space and personal taste. 

The system is enhanced with a chaise longue element that lends itself to various inter­pre­ta­tions: as the termi­nal element in a linear compo­si­tion, with a more envelop­ing back and with the addi­tion of armrests, or it can stand on its own as well as along­side another chaise lounge creat­ing a sofa with deep seating.

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.
