Settembre Sofa/ 2019 design Luca Nichetto
Settembre is the month that says ‘goodbye’ to summer while retaining its scents, blue skies and temperatures that bid you to stay outdoors. The rounded shape of the three-seater sofa and the soft appearance given by the curved shape of its surfaces are designed to improve comfort without the need for additional padding. A slit between the seat and the back-rest allows rainwater to run off, while a hole for inserting lights transforms the sofa into a real light sculpture.
