The seat and back cushions are fixed to the structure with sticks in heartwood. The cushions upholstery cover is removable and available in a selection of signature outdoor fabrics in the collection.
-The Living Divani Floyd-Hi 2 System by Piero Lissoni Modular sofa with backrest and armrests structure in multilayer poplar wood and double-panelled fir-wood, is padded in differentiated density polyurethane foam, and covered in needle punched, resinated, non-woven polyester fiber, bonded onto a polyamide velveteen backing.
-The Poltrona Frau Get Back sofa Ludovica + Roberto Palomba is the result of in-depth research into comfort. Generous, spacious and open lines, reclined backrests that encourage relaxation, two types of armrest, numerous modular elements to combine freely in lots of different compositions. A very light overall effect created by the suspended frame, supported by simple aluminum feet. On top, soft cushions and chaise elements with unexpected depth. An alluring invitation to “Get back home” and enjoy the relaxing and convivial atmosphere of your living room.
-The De Padova Yak sofa by Lucidi Pevere features atmospheres of distant lands and contrasting textures. The combination of materials, artisan crafting and all the elements of the system are perfectly balanced, for a versatile and absolutely contemporary sofa. It’s also perfect outdoors.
-The Poltrona Frau Isadora chair by Roberto Lazzeroni is inspired by the grace of Isadora Duncan, a pioneer of contemporary dance. Its original concept is shaped by the seamless combination of wood and saddle leather.
The solid wood structure traces out a sinuous and agile design thanks to the skilled work on its profiles. The saddle leather upholstery totally envelops it and it almost appears to fly, completely self-supported. Skilful tailored stitching and cuts give it the appearance of a light dress. It exudes both airiness and solidity at the same time thanks to the expert craftsmanship, which pares the materials down to the bare essentials and brings out their pure beauty.
