To develop the new Arcolor sofa for Arflex, Jaime Hayon wanted to create a modular system designed around the classical geometry of the arch. While many modular systems today can be quite square in appearance – in order to enhance their modularity in different configurations -, Hayon employed from the beginning the disciplined use of the arch to create something more organic. The consistency of this approach even applies to the legs, with arches touching the ground. A strong coherence and rhythmic repetition of the form recalls the iconic Roman aqueduct, adapting well across various contexts, whether public or private, lobbies or living rooms.
The sofa has the base with feet in wood, lacquered in the colors of Arflex collection, frame in metal, upholstery in shaped polyurethane with differentiated density.
The consistency of form is transferred to the Arcolor small tables. This range can find a home around the living room, as well as being perched on the armrest of the sofa. This small detail can be useful for placing a cocktail or a coffee at the end of a long day. Rich materiality brings the small tables to life, with noble marble and striking lacquer colors creating a balanced atmosphere.
