Aesthetical and functional, Ray is a modular system that starts with linear elements, chaise longues and terminal elements, which can be used to form all sorts of configurations – even corner and peninsula models. Its strong points are linearity and simplicity, enriched with tailoring elements such as the blanket stitch in the same colour or a contrasting hue, that enhances the removable covers. A main feature is the die-cast U-shaped foot that, along with the seat cushion height, contributes to creating an image of Ray as a particularly elegant piece with balanced forms.
Ray is modular sofa born of the precious convergence of proportions and volumes typical of Antonio Citterio. Far from any obvious attempt to be different, Ray is a modular system that starts with linear elements, chaise longues and terminal elements, which can be used to form all sorts of configurations - even corner and peninsula models. Ray takes certain characteristics from “Charles” (1997) - the strong points, linearity and simplicity - and reworks them with fine details and tailoring elements, in particular the blanket stitch in the same colour or a contrasting hue, that enhances the removable covers. A main feature is the die-cast U-shaped foot that, along with the seat cushions, contributes to creating an image of Ray as a low sofa - a particularly elegant piece with balanced forms.
