Product family


In the beginning there was Fat-Fat, a multifunctional element that doubled as a table/container, from which first the Fat-Fat coffee tables and then the Fat-Fat bed developed. Now these same round, soft and sinuous shapes are repeated in a seating system which includes different typologies: from the linear sofa to the terminal elements, from the armchair with back in two heights, to the chaise longue and to the new ottomans. Fat-Sofa can be upholstered in fabric or leather and is available in a double-colour version or mixing leather and fabric, where the horizontal and vertical surfaces dialogue with each other through nuances of shade or in stronger contrasts.
