The Cestone sofa was designed to be placed at the center of the living room. In the spotlight are the sofa’s back and sides, parts that cannot usually be counted on to bring added value.
There is an accumulation of different inputs and stimuli, a manic flow which goes from architectural forms to various images from folklore. Traditional, futuristic, digital rationality, three-dimensional, romantic, psychedelic elation, a visual melting pot of fabric, fear of emptiness, harmony, immodest, delicacy and geometric severity…an endless series of images and visions , which neither frightens nor intimidates but rather welcomes the user into a soft, hypnotic kaleidoscope. The Blue Edition of the Sushi Collection for Moroso builds on the original Sushi series, a playful range of sophisticated seating solutions for lounge areas. Whereas the original line is typified by an abundance of colours, the blue edition has a more stately presence with subtle geometric patterns on hues ranging from cerulean to royal, cobalt blue. Additionally the collection will contain Red, Green and Grey editions. The Sushi Collection is designed to offer a wide range of seating options for lounges and lobbies. From out-in-the-open benches and poufs, to high-walled chairs allowing for more private conversations or intimate, face-to-face rendezvous. The surprising variety of shapes transforms spaces into landscapes, where the harmonious colours and patterns serve to hold the various elements together. All fabrics are woven in durable yet highly comfortable materials by Febrik. Injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam over internal steel frame. Base in varnished ash. Seat cushions in polyurethane foam and polyester fiber; back cushions in goose down. The Sushi Edition collection covers are not removable, with the exception of the cushions.
Note: Cushion not Included.
