LIGHTPIECE is a collection of both sofas and bookcases. The component sofa offers great flexibility and reprises, in a lighter interpretation, the characteristics of the Groundpiece model. The large seat and back cushions remain, with the down bolster cushion, but two variations are introduced: the enameled metal armrest and the foot in transparent methacrylate, the parts that make this sofa a fresh, light, almost airy product. The compact, slim open Lightpiece bookcases echo the idea of the metal box of the armrests of the sofa. The reflecting surface of the steel on the outside and the internal lacquer finish in a range of colors – white, red, green, gray, brown, black – add a touch of elegant flair to the whole collection.
