RAY Sofa

01 product description

Product description

Ray is a seating system born from the careful convergence of proportions and volumes typical of Antonio Citterio. This modular system, which starts from linear elements, can be extended to include chaise longues, end pieces and ottomans. Although the primary focus of Ray is on comfort with every element at a dual depth, the design is in the details as it features a beautiful “blanket stitch” tailoring that enriches the removable covers. Created with two depths, this sofa has a more traditional version and an extra large version for those that want a truly relaxing position. A main feature is the U-shaped foot in diecast bronzed nickel aluminium that, along with the seat cushions, contributes to creating an image of Ray as a low sofa - a particularly elegant piece. Its sense of comfort is expressed through its many soft cushions, the exact number of which depends on the image that one wants to convey. Even the solid or contrasting fabrics contribute to determining its personality.
