A Touch Of Italy Makes Its Way StatesideAuthor:Caitlin Donovan
FLEXFORM has a sleek new assortment of sofas, loveseats and chairs in their latest collection making its way out of Milan, and once again they’ve relied on architechts to bring them to life. No stranger to collaborating with Italian designers, Antonio Citterio and Carlo Colombo, the 2016 collection marks the first time joining forces with renowned architect and urban designer, Daniel Libeskind.
Even though all three designers have remarkably unique asthetics, they all blend together in a harmonious fashion to create one fluid collection. Libeskind’s ADAGIO sofa is dynamically deconstructed, visually light and makes a charming play on angles.
Citterio’s ETTORE sofa opts for a shorter height but ample padding in the seat cushions, as well as upholstery options of either removable fabric or leather covers.
Joining his sofa, Citterio’s AGAVE armchair elegantly channels a 1940s vibe with its slender, curved wood, soft padding, and a new bergère complete with high-upholstered back, while his CRONO loveseat is distinctly visual with a handmade back consisting of woven cowhide cords.
Colombo’s ISABEL armchair also utilizes the cowhide component, but takes it a step further by lavishly covering the entire piece in it, including its legs. It’s a simple yet impressive statement in any room.
All items are currently available for ordering, and will be on display in the San Francisco showroom in September. Prices available upon request.
