Xarxa Sofa by Martí Guixé for Danese

Spanish designer Martí Guixé has designed an armchair for Italian brand Danese that consists of five large, loose cushions on a wood and metal frame.

The cushions can be reconfigured around the wooden seat, supported by metal arcs.

Buttons can be used to join the pillows together.

Here’s some more information from Danese:

multipurpose seat

xarxa Sofa is the natural evolution of xarxa: a structure to which five pillows can be freely arranged to ensure better comfort. the objective is creating a versatile product that can be liberally interpreted. the base is a bare structure in wood that supports the seat to which three arches in metallic rod are fixed.

the structure has been developed to host a set of xarxa pillows forming a comfortable armchair: two smaller pillows in neutral colours are put on the base while the bigger ones in darker colours and materials are inserted between the wooden and the metallic structures. to obtain diverse configurations, the positions of the pillows can be easily changed. they can be left more or less removed from the structure and at different distances. in order to get original solutions, the user can choose to join them together through buttons or simply put one on top of the other

the choice of metallic rods adds flexibility and elasticity to the structure. the back and arm rests are not stiff. on the contrary, they adjust under the weight of the person who is sitting while providing the right support. the pillows that function as arm rests can be stretched out to form a small corner where the user can find privacy and intimacy.

By folding the pillows and linking the provided buttons at the extremities you can join the pillows while the seat opens outwardly. the pillows can be separated from the structure, which can be used as a top in a more informal and dynamic situation.

materials & finishes:

structure in bircH wood multi-layer
armrest and back in painted metal rod in red, green, orange
5 xarxa cushions in cotton, linen, viscose and polyester
