Product description

Cassiopeia is one of the most distinctive and recognisable constellations in the northern sky. We could say the same about the sofa that takes its name, its incisive design, rich in personality, suggestive of a welcoming, versatile and multifunctional haven. The Cassiopea sofa was designed by Lievore, Altherr and Molina as a space where it is easy to relax, work, read or socialise. It is a system of modular sofas that offers an infinite number of solutions, enabling it to meet any domestic requirement. In fact, the different modules can be arranged to create both linear or corner configurations for both smaller and large spaces. The shell is made from birch plywood with polyurethane foam padding while the seat is made from seasoned beechwood and birch plywood and padded with polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. The spring system consists of zigzag springs. The backrest and armrest cushions are in goose down with polyurethane foam stabilising insert. The sofa can be upholstered entirely in Pelle Frau® leather or in the options that combine multiple materials.

Concept

Infinite constellations for a new concept of the sofa: a multi-functional location, an oasis not only for relaxation but also for work, socialising, reading and entertainment. A polyhedral system for countless combinations in small and vast spaces, with high levels of functionality and liveability. The seats are generous and comfortable, the design essential. The numerous seating elements can be hooked together by means of a simple hidden mechanism but can also live quite happily on their own. The slender structure is in multilayered birch wood with polyurethane foam padding.

Springiness is obtained with zig-zag coils, with polyurethane foam padding and polyester wadding, for the seating, while the back and armrest cushions come with goose feathers and a stabilising insert in polyurethane foam. Upholstery is available in various combinations. The Cassiopea accompaniments have been designed to be placed effortlessly with the sofa and to complement them with shelves and close-to-hand practical storage compartments.
