Saké is a strongly contemporary seating system distinguished by a careful search for formal balance. The idea behind the line is a basic platform, magically suspended in the air like a flying carpet, with cushions to enclose the borders and feet to ground it. The seats, in three sizes, come with embracing or linear backs and armrests of various dimensions, added harmoniously to create a sofa adapted to the customer’s space and personal taste. The details of the cushions and support base contribute to the design’s lightness. The seat cushion has refined modular stitching; the back cushions, available in two sizes, are outlined by profiled bands. The support base is made of crosspieces with rounded steel feet connected to each other by a bar. The system also offers a sofa bed, adopting the other sofas’ seating and back elements.
“This design comes from the search for lightness. A technological platform, magically suspended in the air like a flying carpet, with cushions added to enclose the borders, and finally, legs to ground it.
This is the basic idea of the SAKé collection, made up of pieces for seating and sleeping, designed in a simply contemporary language, connected with my proportions. I liked the idea of following in the wake of B&B Italia, of modernity.
For me, SAKé is a platform on which to float in peace. But it is also a sofa...”.
