Asolo Bed by Flexform
Designed by Antonio Citterio for Flexform.
Comfortable and sophisticated, the Asolo bed reflects the same aesthetic concepts as the eponymous seating system.
The Asolo bed is generously padded and its upholstery is completely removable.
The headboard comes in two different depths and features a unique fold-over design, an elegant construction detail that clearly indicates how the talent for tailoring is an integral part of the company’s DNA.
The Asolo bed rests on a sleek metal base and comes in a number of sizes and different variations: with base composed of a single perimeter frame; rigid base; platform base with height-adjustable slats; and base with storage compartment, handy for storing pillows, blankets and bed linens.
Asolo is equally at ease when ‘dressed’ in any of the fabrics or leathers from the vast Flexform collection and brings understated elegance to the most diverse decors.
