Flexform ‘Groundpiece’ Sofa’s (x2)

 

DESIGNER: ANTONIO CITTERIO
The unrivaled bestseller of all FLEXFORM production, GROUNDPIECE has revolutionized the concept of the sofa, introducing new proportions and measurements. It is comfortably deep, particularly low, and originally deconstructed with large goosedown cushions. GROUNDPIECE has changed our way of sitting on a sofa, making it more informal, adaptable to new uses. It is based on the awareness that functions are linked to new actions and behaviors. On a sofa you can read, rest, watch TV, but also work with a computer, or even eat dinner. This is why low metal storage units covered in cowhide can be inserted in the structure, replacing part of the back or armrest to provide useful counter space. The rather passé decorum of formal seating is swept away by GROUNDPIECE, in favor of a more comfortable, relaxed sitting position. GROUNDPIECE makes a clean break with clichés. For infinite combinations, a range of components can transform it into a sofa, an ottoman, a chaise longue, a storage unit.

As an industrial designer, Antonio Citterio worked for prestigious firms such as B&B Italia, Flexform, Hansgrohe, Iittala, JCDecaux, and Kartell. Antonio Citterio also designed office furniture for Vitra and Hermann Miller as well as numerous lamps for Ansorg, Flos, Belux, and Artemide. In 1986 Antonio Citterio designed the “Sity” sofa for B&B Italia and, in 1990, he collaborated with the designer Glen Oliver Löw on the “Antonio Citterio Collection”, a line in office chairs for Vitra. These office chairs ensured anatomically correct posture without obstructing freedom of movement. In 1994 Antonio Citterio designed “Mobile”, a mobile container, for Kartell; made of translucent plastic, “Mobile” caused a stir at the time as an exciting innovation. Antonio Citterio’s designs are orientated toward the newest technologies and materials yet are timeless. In 1979 and again in 1987 Antonio Citterio was awared the coveted Compasso d’Oro.
