Revival vs. Innovation

The grand review: These are the trends and highlights of this year's Milan furniture fair.
8: perfect proportions and comfort
Following on from the symmetrical design of the Toot sofa designed by Piero Lissoni for Cassina in 2009, 8 (in Italian otto) is the perfect conclusion to this palindromic proposal, with its balanced proportions and heightened comfort.
This modular sofa, available in a wide range of configurations, offers extra comfort thanks to the feather inserts in the sofa’s seat, backrest and armrests which create a soft and sinking sensation.
Sartorial attention to detail
8’s upholstery has been precisely channeled with sartorial craftsmanship into the central groove of its flexible panels, highlighting Cassina’s artisanal manufacturing skills.
The minimal and sober design of 8 is further enriched by the detailed workmanship of the upholstery of the independent armrest cushions which fit perfectly into the framework of the structure. Their tailor-made folds and invisible stitching further enrich the silhouette of the piece.
