Saba Italia - Geo sofas and chairs


Saba produces voluminous sofas with delicate legs


Italian brand Saba has released an upholstery collection that contrasts rounded, voluptuous seats with extremely fine metal legs.


Called Geo and designed by Paolo Grasselli, each bulging corner is framed by three metal rods. The short central one reaches straight down to the floor, while the ones either side of it curl away underneath the upholstery to support the bulk of the seat . The arm width is slightly different to that of the backrest, designed to hug the body when you sit down.

There's a sofa, armchair and pouf in the Geo collection, all with the same corner detailing. A deep pebble shape defines the upholstered part of the footstool. The legs come finished in brass, opaque black, anthracite or polished copper. The cover is removable for dry cleaning.
