The Couch. A typological construction
by Thomas Wagner | 12/6/2011
Extending the range of his Mex Collection, Piero Lissoni shows himself to be not merely an expert designer but of being able to decline an idea in successive evolutions. Going back to work on his Mex sofa, Lissoni has been capable of transforming the project into a system, thereby obtaining a wide range of variations in as many combinations for different uses.
Conceived as a deep seated sofa, Mex is characterised by modern informal comfort and set in a wooden frame forming also kind of shelves and occasional items.
Now Mex appears with a renewed versatility: Mex.Cube. This new evolution stems from the wish to exploit to the utmost the sophisticated internal modular framework that, while invisible, guarantees the structural independence of seat and back.
With their rigid external support removed, the load-bearing modules can be arranged together with a new flexibility to which corresponds a renewed dimensional range of seating. As it is now possible to choose versions with or without backs and arms, there are innumerable conglomerations that can be formed: corner units, central or island formations, and with opposite seating.
New freedom of composition, but the same aesthetic and constructive quality.
