The soft and cozy seating of the Santiago Sofa designed by Claesson, Koivisto, and Rune is the fruit of the skilled use of proportions. Slim, short legs support the generous, round volumes of the seat and back, to create full shapes that offer a visual invitation to find comfort and rest. The collection includes a sofa and lounge chair with footrest, which can live alone or together, in settings with a diverse range of styles.
