SAKé signals the beginning of Piero Lissoni’s collaboration with B&B Italia.
The design begins from a strongly contemporary seating system distinguished by a careful search for formal balance. Seats in three sizes (175, 210 and 270 cm), with embracing or linear backs and arms of various dimensions added harmoniously to create a sofa adapted to the customer’s space and personal taste.
The system is enhanced with a chaise longue element (105 x 135 cm) that lends itself to various interpretations: as the terminal element in a linear composition, with a more enveloping back and with the addition of arms, it can stand on its own or, alongside another chaise lounge, it can create a sofa with deep seating. The details of the cushions and supporting base contribute to the design lightness.
The seat cushion has refined modular stitching, ranging from 35 or 45 cm; the back cushions, available in two sizes, are outlined by profiled bands. The seating system support base is made of cross-bars with rounded steel legs connected to each other by a bar. All this is finished in pewter lacquer paint.
This seating system also offers a sofa bed (150 x 210 cm), the only one in the B&B Italia collection, adopting the other sofas seating and back elements. The interchangeable right or left arm can serve as a headboard when, with a simple translation movement of the seat and the overturning of the back, the sofa becomes a single bed.
