SAKé by Piero Lissoni for B&B Italia
Updated: Jan 2, 2020
SAKé signals the beginning of Piero Lissoni’s collaboration with B&B Italia. The design begins from a strongly contemporary seating system distinguished by a careful search for formal balance. Seats in three sizes (cm 175, 210 and 270), with embracing or linear backs and arms of various dimensions added harmoniously to create a sofa adapted to the customer’s space and personal taste. The system is enhanced with a chaise longue element (cm 105 x 135) that lends itself to various interpretations: as the terminal element in a linear composition, with a more enveloping back and with the addition of armrests, it can stand on its own or, alongside another chaise lounge, it can create a sofa with deep seating. The details of the cushions and support base contribute to the design lightness.
The seat cushion has refined modular stitching, ranging from cm 35 or cm 45; the back cushions, available in two sizes, are outlined by profiled bands. The seating system support base is made of crosspiece with rounded steel feet connected to each other by a bar. All this is finished in pewter painted colour. This seating system also offers a sofa bed (cm 150 x 210), the only one in the B&B Italia collection, adopting the other sofas seating and back elements. The interchangeable right or left armrest can serve as a headboard when, with a simple translation movement of the seat and the overturning of the back, the sofa becomes a single bed.
