Lightpiece by Flexform
Lightpiece is a collection of both sofas and bookcases by Antinio Citterio for Flexform.
The component sofa offers great flexibility and reprises, in a lighter interpretation, the characteristics of the Groundpiece model. The large seat and back cushions remain, with the down bolster cushion, but two variations are introduced: the enameled metal armrest and the foot in transparent methacrylate, the parts that make this sofa a fresh, light, almost airy product.
The compact, slim open Lightpiece bookcases echo the idea of the metal box of the armrests of the sofa. The reflecting surface of the steel on the outside and the internal lacquer finish in a range of colors – white, red, green, gray, brown, black – add a touch of elegant flair to the whole collection.
Frame in metal epoxy powder coated on the inside and covered with shiny stainless steel on the outside. Colours available: White 100 – pearl beige 130 – cream white 150 – white mat 160 – cream colour 205 – wine red405 – kaki green 705 – umbra grey 720 – pearl mouse grey 740 – brown grey 805 – black 900.SHOW MORE SHOW LESS
