The Philippe Strack’s Volage sofa for Cassina lives at the intersection of design, style, and comfort. Understated volumes reflect the light, yet solid, lines of the base, designed to adapt seamlessly into any domestic setting.
An internal frame of tubular steel supports the backrest and armrests. The singular seat cushion is constructed from differentiated density polyurethane foam. Available in textile upholstery or a special patented capitonné leather finish. For more in the series, see the Volage EX‑S sofa and the Volage low tables. As usual, Cassina’s commitment to quality is exemplified here.

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.
