Zephyr Sofa

  • Multiplicities Exhibition, Fonderia Napoleonica, Milano, Italy
  • 09/04/2019 – 14/04/2013
  • Cassina Contract
  • 265 x 284 x 73 cm Lacquered fibreglass solid body, fabric upholstery

The sinuous shape of the Zephyr sofa has been inspired by natural rock formations shaped by erosion: the application of subtractive processes that carve solid matter. The resulting formal language gives the Zephyr sofa increased ergonomic properties without compromising the design’s fluidity or proportion; translating into a concept that llows for multiple seating layouts.

The carved profile incorporates deep backrests and generous undercuts for unrivalled comfort. A lacquered finish applied to Zephyr’s structural elements highlights every subtle nuance of its composition, and is contrasted by the tactile qualities of its bespoke upholstery and cushioning. Zephyr showcases Cassina Contract’s unrivalled technical experience and longstanding tradition of artisan excellence.
