Armchair and sofa designed by Superstudio
Sofo is a seat to place in a row, like a train, or to stack to build solid, colorful mountains. It is simply a block made with an S—shaped cut from a cube of polyurethane, covered with fabric featuring two large stripes. The result of a very simple operation, without wasted material or thought. It presents itself as a compact, abstract, colorful object that communicates the joy of living, like things that arrive from another world.
