Grafo comes from the designer’s desire to endow a soft object with the “identifying mark” of the iconic products of the MDF Italia collection.
A pure, straightforward graphic quality – part of the company’s philosophy – has been the source of inspiration for the project. Grafo is a modular system.Three sofa, eight upholstered elements and three complementary coffee tables allow endless solutions to be developed in accordance to the free, creative interpretation of the customer. Special contrasting stitching on the edges available in white, medium grey and anthracite. The folding backrest built into the module ensures height regulation. The system is completed by a wide range of cushions.
