or Call to Order

The Volage EX‑S sofa designed by Philippe Starck for Cassina is a sectional char­ac­ter­ized by a wide array of elements and a time­lessly elegant aesthetic, suit­able for any living room space. This sofa features an inno­v­a­tive approach to Cassina’s state-of-the-art capi­tonné tech­nique. This indus­trial approach was devel­oped by Philippe Starck and Cassina. In some instances, the tradi­tional button is replaced by a concealed inner fastener. The uniform, extra-soft, feel of the back­rest’s uphol­stery is achieved by using a pre-formed polyurethane insert. The sofa features just the one seat cushion and a partic­u­larly wide arm-rest; both are feather-filled with an expanded polyurethane core. 

The design was updated in 2019 and is now avail­able with a narrow armrest offer­ing more space with the same overall dimen­sions. The preci­sion-perfect edge-stitch­ing, along with the impec­ca­ble leather­work of the inte­grated side-tables, illus­trate the metic­u­lous atten­tion to detail that informs Cassina’s master crafts­man­ship. The Volage EX‑S collec­tion lends itself to a myriad of compo­si­tions and is now comple­mented by the new coor­di­nated low tables, and a new module size.


Philippe Starck


Philippe Starck has a mission and a vision: creation, whatever shape it takes, must make life better for the largest number of people possible. Starck believes this highly poetic, political, rebellious, benevolent, pragmatic and subversive duty must be borne by all and he resumes it with the humor that has accompanied his approach since the earliest days. Despite his thousands of projects - completed or in the making - he remains committed to never forgetting the essential.

Starck possesses an anticipatory concern for environmental implications. His profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his enthusiasm for imagining new lifestyles, his determination to change the world, his devotion to a positive reduction, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. His technological miracles are vectors of democratic ecology, focused on action and a respect for the future of both humans and nature. Predicting the phenomena of convergence and dematerialization, Philippe Starck has always devised objects that demand the most from the least.

Philippe Starck is all of the above, but above all, he is a man of honesty, in the purest tradition of the Renaissance artists.
