Antonio Citterio

Sofas

Description

An outdoor collection of sofas with a contemporary classic accent, Gio stands out for its solid teakwood frames in a special antique grey finish, which grants the wood a particular lived-in look with silver grey reflections. The various types of sofas, terminal elements and chaise longues can be combined to form in-line, corner and peninsula seating. They all have a basic frame made of wooden slats, on which a backrest and armrests – characterised by an interlacing of dove grey coloured polypropylene ribbons – can easily be inserted. This particular type of frame allows for easily disassembling of the various components, so as to reduce the space needed to store the products in winter. The seats’ seat and back cushions, in exclusive colour combinations, make Gio particularly enveloping and comfortable. In addition to the sofas, the Gio series also includes loungers, armchairs, chairs, tables and accessories.
