Absolute comfort, thanks to its generous volumes, and a delicate design with simple geometries, characterise this sofa designed to rediscover a convivial dimension thanks to its open shapes. Inspired by the Orient, a recurring theme in the Cassina Collections and expressed in particular in Charlotte Perriand’s work, Sengu Sofa stands out for its different and never conventional compositions, all with natural materials and colours. Its structure, composed of a belted steel frame elegantly finished with two wooden beams, evokes Japanese memories; the sofa’s ergonomics are heightened by the soft fold of the backrests and armrests that are characterised by external quilting. This same detail is also repeated on the back cushions that complete the sofa. Thanks to the study carried out by Cassina LAB, a collaboration between the Cassina Research and Development Centre and Polidesign at the Milan Polytechnic, a 100% recycled fibre, made from PET mainly recovered from the sea, has been incorporated in the padding of the cushions.
Active since 1927, Cassina was one of the first Italian companies to focus on furniture research and innovation. It partnered with distinguished architects and designers to find new ways of designing and thus beginning industrial design in Italy as early as the 1950s. Cassina has always had a very precise identity aknowledged allover the world, due to the balance between technology and craftsmanship.
The Cassina collection "I grandi Maestri" began in 1964 with the collaboration of designers such as Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.
