A project with a dynamic, deconstructed design, like the works of architecture of the visionary American talent. A component sofa, visually light, the result of the composition of specific volumes where Euclidean geometry is cast aside. The upholstered back is high and inclined, while the single soft cushion is trapezoidal in form, combined with a chaise longue element that also has an asymmetrical form.
The armrests are padded or in painted metal. Unusual angles and thicknesses, with no orthogonal joints, because the harmony comes from the balanced composition of the volumes. The ADAGIO Sofa brings together a synergy of architectural form and everyday comfort. ADAGIO means slow or at ease. The canted arms and back re-imagine the rigid structure of a traditional sofa creating more comfortable movement and a dynamic form.
The materials and colors are inspired by classic Italian design. “The design celebrates the subtle details of the everyday form and the excellence of Italian craftsmanship,” said architect and designer Daniel Libeskind.he fertile collaboration between the designer and the company has generated a product that perfectly combines the architect’s philosophy of forceful, iconic forms with the idea of sober elegance that is an integral part of the company’s identity. The result is a product that emphasizes and reinforces the idea of comfort, introducing unusual new aesthetic codes.
Adagio sofa has a wooden frame, padded with polyurethane, and it is covered with a protective fabric lining. The seat cushions are made of polyurethane and dacron. The back cushions are down-filled and made of polyester fibre. The throw pillows can be down-filled (on request with upcharge). The feet are made of polished pvc. The upholstery contains removable fabric or leather covers.
