The natural evolution of the sofa, from the famous Beatles song “Let it Be” is an evocative of a new-found freedom from all types of formalism and convention.
This sofa embraces and reinterprets the time-honored Italian concept of the Roman triclinium, where people lay down, ate, talked and lazed about.
A modular system open to the most comfortable of configurations, “Let it Be” is an invitation to relax. It can be completed according to taste with shelves and storage units that expand its functions. The structure and the soft down cushions appear to be suspended on saddle leather straps. The foot, unexpectedly set back from the corner, enhances the sensation that the seats are floating in space.
The visible leather and saddle leather stitching bring to mind the processing of fine saddles and harnesses. The frame is in die-cast aluminum with joints in black painted steel. The seat spring system uses intertwined elastic belts, while the seat cushion padded in goose down and polyester wadding.
