Antonio Citterio chooses to revisit a seating system featured in the 1999 catalogue, a system that stood out for its rigour and simple design. Today the collection includes a 230 cm chaise-longue element with a gentler image, while the shape remains unchanged, characterised by the armrest placed on the protruding seat.
In this new version, a prominent faux leather profile defines the lines of the sofa, a tailored detail that softens the severe features of the first version. Likewise, even the supports, that were once straight, become gentler with a more harmonious appearance, in a new interpretation of the die- casting process from which they originated.
It will be the choice of those who seek haute-couture details, and may choose between the integrally coloured and contrasting profile by playing with the four colours available (natural, dark brown and dove grey). The die-cast aluminium supports are available in a glossy brushed, black chrome or bronzed nickel finish.
Solo again interprets the theme of the sofa, beginning with a highly comfortable seat sustained by a die-cast aluminium support. Its size offers an image of lightness, which is enhanced by a continuous seat without cushions. Three sizes are available, along with ottomans that create a chaise longue corner when placed beside the sofa. Also available is a real chaise longue that can stand on its own, or be placed beside an a left or right end unit.
