Missana - Pigro sofa

Foam seats nestle in metal frames

Chunky foam seats nestle in the winding iron bases of a playful new furniture collection created by Rome design practise Pastina.

Named after the Italian word for lazy, the Pigro collection includes an upholstered foam sofa and lounge chair made by Valencia furniture brand Massina. The metal frames run along each side of the seats at the bottom and curve down at the corners, drawing a playful line around the stout bases. The seats are slightly curved on top, which softens the strong outline of the solid blocks.

The backrest is made from another piece of foam that’s fixed on top of the seat and the frame reaches all the way up the back to support it from behind.

Each piece of foam has a wooden internal structure and the lacquered metal bases come in a range of different colours. For the upholstery, you can choose between fabrics from brands including Kvadrat, Gabriel and Febrik.
