J.J.
Designer: Antonio Citterio

The J.J. family presents armchairs with a different look and a wide variety of materials: with a steel-rod structure supporting a wooden frame, they convey a certain degree of lightness. Entirely made of thermo-treated ash wood, they hint at traditional aesthetics. The armchair fitted with a sleigh, the expression of the traditional rocking chair, becomes even more glamorous when it is attired in long-haired Mongolian lamb fur. Learn More

CHARLES
Designer: Antonio Citterio

The concept behind the Charles is to have a high seat modular sofa with all the elements available in different forms, types and sizes. Linear and corner compositions have been developed with these elements in mind, especially for the chaise lounge end units. The Charles’ peninsula-style compositions look especially beautiful as the centerpiece of a room. The single-seat cushion, the free pillows placed on the backrest and the pure lines of the die-cast aluminum feet give the Charles sofa a decidedly modern feel. Learn More

GRANDE PAPILIO
Designer: Naoto Fukasawa

The name recalls the butterfly because, as explained by the designer, “the backrest is designed so the two wings have the head resting between them and protected by them.” It seems carved out of a block material, from which its inverted truncated cone shape is derived. With a powerful personality, its swivel system facilitates contact with the surrounding environment. The chair includes an ottoman footrest for an absolutely relaxing position. Learn More

BEND-SOFA
Designer: Patricia Urquiola

Patricia Urquiola has designed a surprising series of seats that transfor the traditional concept of the sofa. She has named the product Bend-Sofa due to its curvaceous albeit monolithic form. It gives the appearance of being manually fouled from a supple material as if by a sculptor. In practice, it’s made from a study of 3-D models and digital research. Bend-Sofa effectively conveys the idea of motion by alternating full and empty spaces. Contrasting stitchings add to the intrinsic design on the surface. The backrest is irregularly shaped, but without compromising comfort. Curved modules - assembled starting with the seats, ottoman and corner elements - form a sofa that breaks out of the usual visual schemes and differentiates from other contemporary pieces on account of its calculated eccentricity.
