Life sofa, Roberto Monsani - Acerbis Design
Year
1975 – 2021
Designer

In envisioning new styles of living, Roberto Monsani imagined solutions to reshape the home, and the Life sofa retains its modern edge. Maintaining its modular and flexible design, today the sofàs original lucite frame has been elongated and updated with versions in dark stained walnut and black ash for contemporary living ideals.

The feather cushions, extremely comfortable and designed for informal relaxation, are made even more welcoming by the velvet upholstery or the other fabrics in the collection.

The seat and pouf make it possible to create infinite configurations that can be modified according to need.

Video by Lorenzo Gironi

A video directed by Lorenzo Gironi, shot entirely on film, in which seven products, integral part of the Acerbis’ heritage, reemerge under a new light. A game, a succession of unprecedented contaminations, suggestions, sounds, oppositions and unions.

Product plus

The wooden shell houses a soft padding that provides great comfort.

Generous proportions and soft feather cushions provide a cosy feeling.

3 modules, infinite configuration possibilities.

Finishes

The following elements are available: seat module, pouf S and pouf M.

Structure: curved, brushed open grain birch plywood veneered in black ash and dark walnut finish, with a system of hidden connection hooks.

Backrest and seat cushions: polyurethane foam with feather filling, with removable fabric coverings, and the purchasing option of additional upholstery coverings.

Dark stained walnut ES59

Canaletto walnut has a medium tone with soft colour variations, making it one of the most popular woods in recent years. The dark colour shade enhances the value and elegance of the material.

Black ash ES58

Ash is a special veneer that is particularly suitable for "open-pore" painting because it always shows a very natural vein even after treatment.
