A historic sofa that is still absolutely modern, and has in fact continued to be a true protagonist of the company’s offerings since the late Seventies. Distinctive, basic, soft and reassuring, PASODOBLE stands on tubular metal feet. The design is based on the idea of a soft cube. In the linear sofa or armchair versions it is a model with a genteel image of sober simplicity, with a low back and down-filled armrests, substantial seat, inner wooden structure, and removable fabric or leather cover. The basic ingredients of a FLEXFORM icon.
