Striking Design

A new family of component sofas in line with the distinctive image of every new FLEXFORM offering. ZENO features a particular arm in metal tubing covered with cowhide, a striking design idea that takes on the form of a small wing. The model comes in two versions. ZENO is low-set, with upholstery that almost reaches the floor, and soft cushions for the seat and back. Here the armrest cushion is held in place by the metal tubing.

Low-set, with upholstery that almost reaches the floor

ZENO LIGHT, on the other hand, is the version raised off the floor. The visible metal structure clad in cowhide, eliminating the upholstery at the base, gives the sofa a light, airy look. The different depths available for the two models make the range of choices varied, versatile and extremely flexible.
