A touch of new objectivity

Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
“Hiro is a sofa with a light image, which seems to hover casually above the floor, in linewith my original vision of the ‘quintessential’ sofa.”
Hiro is a monobloc sofa with an essential, contemporary design that enters anyenvironment with a distinct personality. It appears to be slightly raised above the ground,thanks to the inverted-T-shaped feet. The design is distinguished by the lines extendingalong the perimeter of the armrest that, in contrast to the softness of the internal profile,create a curious encounter with the structure and enhance its sophistication and elegance.The collection optimises comfort thanks to the breadth of the seat; armrests and back areprovided at the same height, supplied with large cushions that ensure effective ergonomicsupport.
Aluminium alloy feet, either polished or with natural or black nickel-satin finish. Steel frame.Elastic strips suspension.
