Adagio Sofa by Flexform
A project with a dynamic, deconstructed design, designed for Flexform by the visionary architect Daniel Libeskind.
Adagio is a component sofa, visually light, the result of the composition of specific volumes where Euclidean geometry is cast aside. The upholstered back is high and inclined, while the single soft cushion is trapezoidal in form, combined with a chaise longue element that also has an asymmetrical form. The armrests are padded or in painted metal. Unusual angles and thicknesses, with no orthogonal joints, because the harmony comes from the balanced composition of the volumes.
The Adagio Sofa brings together a synergy of architectural form and everyday comfort. Adagio means slow or at ease. The canted arms and back re-imagine the rigid structure of a traditional sofa creating more comfortable movement and a dynamic form. The materials and colours are inspired by classic Italian design. “The design celebrates the subtle details of the everyday form and the excellence of Italian craftsmanship,” said architect and designer Daniel Libeskind.
The fertile collaboration between the designer and the company has generated a product that perfectly combines the architect’s philosophy of forceful, iconic forms with the idea of sober elegance that is an integral part of the company’s identity. The result is a product that emphasizes and reinforces the idea of comfort, introducing unusual new aesthetic codes.
