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.
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.
