Grafo comes from the designer’s desire to endow a soft object with the “identifying mark” of the iconic products of the MDF Italia collection.
A pure, straightforward graphic quality – part of the company’s philosophy – has been the source of inspiration for the project.
With no daring pursuit at any cost, this modular system mixing upholstered and rigid elements, can be incorporated into any setting, from home to community areas.
The collection is made up of eight elements that together with three complementary coffee tables allows endless solutions to be developed in accordance to the free, creative interpretation of the customer.
Simple and flexible, spontaneous and timeless, dynamic and continuously evolving, Grafo system is fully able to change its form to meet the needs, moods and demands of each moment.
The graphic approach that inspired the project has resulted in the special contrasting stitching on the edges which underscores the proportions and the visual link among the various elements.
The folding backrest built into the module ensures a comfortable and space-saving seating.
Sectionals: upholstered elements and coffee tables
All sectionals can be used individually or grouped together, as no exclusively end or intermediate elements are necessary; each sectional, indeed, can be used with simplicity and creativity to compose the sofa.
The special and easy coupling device system enables unlimited layouts to be figured out, from compact to linear or corner compositions, large islands, chaise longues and many others.
Coffee table modules can be added to create both decorative interruptions and useful service elements.
The Graf system is completed by a wide range of cushions: backrest cushions made of polyurethane foam and down, armrest cushions made of polyurethane foam and down, additional cushions made of down.
For a full seat comfort, an upholstered sectional must be matched with a “backrest cushion” (45×75 cm or 45×100 cm).
The armrest cushion (25×75 cm, 25×100 cm) can be used with the sectionals with no armrest or backrest, as well as with coffee table modules. Besides being a decorative element, they can compensate the lack of a structural armrest. The 10 cm large edge strip matches the graphic proportion between the seat cushion and the folding element.
To complete the look of the sofa and add extra comfort, additional cushions (50×50 cm and 60×60 cm) can be included as smooth, stylistically decorative elements.
Upholstered sectionals: the supporting structure is made of solid wood and plywood with a base equipped with elastic belts and concealed feet.
The filling is in variable density polyurethane foam, and the cover in polyester padding (with down in the seat cushions).
All backrest elements are equipped with a special “folding” system, enabling the height of the backrest to be adjusted, which subsequently modifies the seat depth. In this way the system can meet any needs and comfort requirements.
Coffee table modules: made of a load-bearing structural MD-fibreboard panel and aluminium in thickness 15 mm, in matt white or black Fenix®.
Legs are made of cast aluminium with section 15×15 mm, powder-coated in matt white or graphite.
Available dims: W 98.5 x L 98.5 cm, W 49.2 x L 98.5 cm and W 24.5 x L 98.5 cm, height 40 cm.
The contrasting graphic stitching that distinguishes and identifies the Graf collection is the mark on all the upholstered sectionals and the cushions. Available in white, medium grey and anthracite, the stitching can be freely selected by the customer.
The fabric or leather covering every part of the sofa is manufactured to enhance the softness of the sofa. In addition, the covers are completely removable.
Upon discretion of MDF Italia, all leather elements can have one or more stitched seams, depending on their size.
An extra cover can be purchased for both the upholstered sectionals and the cushions.
