or Call to Order

The Scighera sofa seating system includes a two-seater sofa, modular corner units and single or two-seater end units (left and right side), a modular chaise lounge (left or right side) and optional cush­ions. The seats have gener­ously-sized armrests and a fold­able head­rest, whose movable mech­a­nism provides for differ­ent posi­tions to ensure an excel­lent level of comfort. When closed the head­rest lies flush with the armrest, thus empha­siz­ing the linear nature of the minimalist design. 

The excep­tional quality stitch­ing with gros­grain profile is avail­able in four color options: beige, tobacco, coffee, and grey. Seat frame with elastic straps. The seat cush­ions, back­rest, and armrests are in differ­en­ti­ated density polyurethane foam padded in feather. The remov­able uphol­stery is avail­able in fabric or leather. Base in gloss metal or matte enam­eled metal in the colors: anthracite grey or chest­nut brown. The collec­tion is completed with a range of square, oval or rectan­gu­lar side tables with marble or glass tops.

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.
