Concept

Sumo is a new family of upholstered seats defined by volumes and lines that follow an extremely original formal language: playful and sensual but at the same time precise and composed. The voluptuos and welcoming roundness of the seats evoke the power, balance, serenity and the 'force tranquille' of a Sumo wrestler. The fusion of a sphere and a cube the base concept for the formal development of the line creates external swellings that reveal a tension trapped inside the mass. When they are being used the pieces seem to lower themselves to envelope us in a welcoming hug. The imposing presence, dressed in classical and contemporary fabrics with stitching lines that exalt the form, meets the body quite ergonomically.

The Sumo family includes a couch, an armchair and a pouf, with an internal steel structure in steel foamed with CFC-free flexible polyurethane, cold-processed and supported by internal flexible belts in the seat, backrest and arms. The four nylon feet are adjustable. In can be dressed with all the fabrics of the Baleri Italia collection, updated and renewed for 2008.
