Product description

Architonic ID 1379537
Year of Launch 2016
Paying homage to the work of Vico Magistretti, this innovative system of upholstered seating is underpinned by a supporting beam on which modules join together to create stylish, relaxing and functional compositions. The high and reclining back create the effect of a warm, welcoming embrace, that effect heightened by the soft, inviting cushions. The mastery of Cassina’s craftsmanship is revealed in the pinched stitching around the perimeter of the cushions, adding an extra touch of refinement. With the feather-padded upholstery covering the CFCfree expanded polyurethane foam pads, adding to the cosy look and feel of the sofa. The system includes three sofas and various modular elements, including seating, side-tables, a foot-rest.


Manufacturer’s Catalogues



An articulated sofa system which develops along a beam.
The Beam Sofa System is made up of soft cushions supported by a beam, a sharp line, that ‘raises’ the flexible and lightweight back and armrest cushions which meet in an skilful embrace. The Beam Sofa System has those hidden qualities that often characterise the company’s models and that pay tribute to Vico Magistretti’s work. The project comprises a beam base and a series of enveloping cushions and seating. The result is a non-conformist sectional sofa.

An inviting sofa characterised by a play on movement and overlap
The formal rigour of the Beam Sofa System’s base contrasts with its inviting cushions. The sofa’s armrest can be regulated in two positions at 30° and the chain mechanism of the folded side/back cushion means that it can be positioned as desired to make the piece even more comfortable. The side view of the sofa particularly gives value to the detail of the armrest which contains the backrest in an embrace. The aesthetic value of the sofa’s sinuous and soft form is maintained thanks to the detail of a contemporary stitching ‘pinched’ around its perimeter. A new fabric collection, Gea, designed by Giulio Ridolfo, has been introduced especially for this sofa: the striped material, for example, emphasises the length of the sofa which is drawn into the armrest.
