Sofas

Description

Minimalism and basic lines mark long upholstered benches, with or without back, which convey a sense of comfort and weightlessness. The back, which look small in comparison to the seat, ends with a short fold-back part at the top on which to rest the arms comfortably while seated. A curved joint shaped like a quarter-circle enables to combine benches of different sizes, with or without backs, to create seats of various lengths and shapes, producing original landscapes in public areas. In addition, an elegant wooden board can be placed on the seat to act as a top or service element.
