Skrivo Design’s aim when designing the Pinch collection of armchairs and sofas for LaCividina was to create areas where people could experience a little privacy and tranquillity in public spaces.
The name comes from the original shape of the tubular metal frame, which literally pinches the backrest and the side pieces. This makes them into padded walls that form a sort of comfort room.
The form of Pinch was developed due to the desire to combine two very different materials: polyurethane foam, which has the capacity to change shape, and steel, the quintessential rigid material.
The pairing of these two elements has produced a collection of sofas with innovative shapes. Rather than stopping at the conventional height, the structure of the legs continues and takes on an innovative supporting function, holding steady the padded walls and giving the seating an original, high impact overall look.
Pinch products can be made even more practical with the addition of tables to the structures to make the seats into comfortable places for working, studying or eating.
The Pinch collection come in four widths: 1200mm, 1700mm, 2100mm and 2500mm.
And three wall heights: 700mm, 900mm and 1400mm.
