Concept

Paolo Piva created an entire sofa range based on the Corso chair, mainly with the contract market in mind. The armchair, two and three-seat sofas, as well as a bench are all derived from the same characteristic U-shape as the Corso chair. The result is an unusually light character, especially in the case of the sofas, which recall a waiting room bench. This range is particularly suitable for public areas of buildings, but at the same time the quality of the upholstery ensures that waiting is a comfortable experience. The formal design of the armrests reflects functional considerations, while they also create a sense of comfort and relaxation. And it is precisely these feelings that use of furniture inspires.

Benches are increasingly finding a place in dining sets. Paolo Piva’s Corso bench is a logical addition to the Corso range, and does not involve sacrificing the key advantage of the flexible back rest which permits each diner to find the most comfortable seating position.
