Guest Chair by LaCividina
Guest is a new modular sofa system designed by Antonio Rodriguez for LaCividina. It caters to the needs of the contracting and residential markets with its substantial dimensions and maximum scope for different combinations. There are soft, simple lines in this sitting landscape, which presents the same outstanding aesthetic and conceptual values and quality offered by the company in all of its new projects, thus underlining once again its capacity to grasp and meet the design demands of the contemporary world.
The iconic, fluid Guest sofa is sophisticated, welcoming and packed with style features that will make it the centre of attention in any living area. It can fit marvellously into any architectural surroundings and its dimensions mean that it is ideal for large lounges, as well as for adding style and personality to private settings. Guest is an ode to the purest elegance and a master class in style. While it has undeniable breadth, it avoids excessive volume and superfluous details such as stitching, which has been limited to the bare minimum to give it a peerlessly refined appearance.
There are 23 items of different shapes and sizes in the collection, for maximum flexibility. They make Guest a truly versatile product because they can be matched together in an array of modular solutions. The strong personality of the range always shines through, regardless of whether a single unit is used or large, complex combinations are formed.SHOW MORE SHOW LESS

About the designer
Born in Spain in 1963, Antonio Rodriguez started studying architecture at the Polytechnic of Valencia. After a visit to a design exhibition in Valencia he decided to study industrial design too at the School of Applied Arts of Valencia where took his degree in 1989. This was followed up with a second thesis in ‘Black & Decker tools to use in the home’ at the Istituto Europe di Design in Milan in 1992. Back in Valencia in 1992, he followed his own industrial design studio established in 1989, but moved back to Milan in the following year to freelance, as he felt that Italian entrepreneurs had a more highly developed understanding of the potential to be gained from working with design and designers.
In the nineties, a growing focus on designing in Milan for clients in Japan soon also developed into a working relationship with the Taipei Design Centre in Milan. In Milan he started a five-year stint of practical, project-based teaching at the Istituto Europeo di Design (2000-2005). Antonio Rodriguez joined Matteo Thun & Partners in 2000 to work on product design, contributing significantly to the development of products in vitreous china for Catalano, tap and shower systems for Isy and the Illy bar accessories collection, among others. Antonio Rodriguez was made a partner at MTP in 2003, where he is responsible for the partnership’s flagship activity of industrial design.
