The Sofa Transformed
"We innovate, and this way of working is what leads to extraordinary products." —Antonio Citterio
An undeniable best-seller from Antonio Citterio for Flexform, Groundpiece Sofa has transformed the very concept of the sofa, introducing several innovations. First of all, it is a deconstructed line with new proportions—the Groundpiece sofa is low and deep, designed as a more relaxed and casual approach to seating. Groundpiece embodies the essence of Flexform comfort and is exceptionally inviting, thanks to the amply-sized goose-down cushions. Groundpiece also allows for the utmost personalization of the padded elements that can be crafted in goose down, in the premium version, or in Dacron.
Aware that changes in lifestyle spark new behaviors and needs, Groundpiece introduced a new dimension to the way the sofa is used, investing it with new functions. On today’s sofas, people rest, watch TV, read, eat dinner, and often work. This reality led to the brilliant idea of redesigning the armrest concept. Choose a padded and upholstered armrest or a cowhide-clad metal console that can be used as a flat surface for accessories with shelves to hold objects of all kinds.
