The Moka display case is part of the eponymous collection designed by Mario Asnago and Claudio Vender in 1939 and produced by Flexform since 1985.
The Zeus sofa comes in one size only and has a rigid shell made of structural polyurethane and polyurethane foam. It features dynamic lines with armrests that open out away from the base. Inside the structure, the soft seat cushion is padded with goose down with core insert in crushproof material, while the soft lumbar support cushions are designed to enhance the comfort of the seat back. The sofa is raised off the floor on elegant cast-aluminum bases available in satin, chrome, burnished, black chrome or champagne finish.
Both Mario and Claudio received Architecture Certification at the Bologna Institute of Fine Arts in 1922. The first joint projects were for competitions, among which the Como War Memorial. In 1928, after obtaining the right to practice as architects, together they opened the Studio Asnago-Vender Architetti. They were mostly involved in town planning architecture (schools - residence - churches...). Among the objects designed for interiors were tables and chairs with the characteristic X. The slender structure represents the architectural philosophy of the two designers: surfaces are wide but spaced out with empty spaces that point out the discreet presence of the material, which does not take away lightness, but only part of the stiff evenness that characterizes their interiors. After Asnago's retirement in 1971, Vender continued the business with his son Mario and Mario Moganti.
FLEXFORM’s history is a family history. Now at the third generation, FLEXFORM was founded in the furniture manufacturing district of Brianza, in Northern Italy.
