Tailoring Details

One of Ray Sofa's most striking elements is its blanket stitch visible on the profiles of its cover. Traditionally used by indigenous American cultures for weaving basket rims and for securing leather pieces, the blanket stitch adds texture and depth to this luxe sofa.

Overview

B&B Italia’s Ray Sofa was born of the precious convergence of proportions and volumes typical of Antonio Citterio. Far from any obvious attempt to be different, Ray is a modular system that starts with linear elements—chaise longues and terminal elements—which can be used to form all sorts of configurations, including corner and peninsula models.

Ray Sofa takes certain characteristics from Charles Sofa—linearity, and simplicity—and reworks them with fine details and tailoring elements like the blanket stitch that comes in either the same color or a contrasting hue. The main feature is the die-cast U-shaped foot which, along with the seat cushions, contributes to an image of Ray as a low sofa—a particularly elegant piece with balanced forms.
