Concept

Piergiorgio Cazzaniga has a patent for sculptural shapes which seem surprisingly light and challenge the laws of gravity. This is no different for the Vis à vis sofa: a slender, teak platform supports comfortable outdoor cushions without any visible back or arm structure. The cushions are supported by brackets in stainless steel which means that the sofa looks great from whichever way you look at it. Moreover, you can attach a graphic border or practical tables to the platform which the platform appears to be floating. The outdoor cushions can be left outside, even when it’s raining, thanks to the ventilating stuffing in a waterproof cover.

The Vis à Vis sofa also offers a modular construction system in which endless compositions are possible, from a small meridienne sofa to a large corner sofa with sidetables.
