22 June, 2020
Renowned for their timeless classics, Italian furniture brand Flexform continues to surprise us with bold, extraordinary forms throughout the decades. The family-owned business is now in its third generation with a rich heritage that dates back to the 1900s. Focused on creating products that enrich everyday lives, every Flexform design is imbued with a unique personality and longevity in mind.
The business is driven by close, collaborative relationships with leading designers for more than 60 years. As a long-time partner and tribute to Flexform’s everlasting success, architect-designer Antonio Citterio introduces the Romeo sofa.
This new lounging system’s sculptural form is balanced with its gentle, delicate lines, proportions and exquisitely crafted details in the seating experience. The goose-down-filled cushions are generous in shape and comfort, bringing a sophisticated elegance to the superior functionality of Romeo.
Citterio’s attention to detail is demonstrated in the architectural integrity of the sofa with its cast aluminium feet and subtle grosgrain piping that oulines the stitching and emphasises the aesthetically balanced shapes. Its robust materiality is perfectly complemented with its soft textural upholstery features and curved forms, bringing a distinct softness to Romeo.
Meticulously crafted for every environment, the seating system is extremely versatile and tailored to suit any of the fabrics and leather in the Flexform collection. Romeo is designed for every individual, every space and every setting – blurring the lines between a formal and informal arrangement with its modern simplicity.
Romeo is a result of extraordinary Italian craftsmanship. Citterio’s remarkable expertise is imbued in the quality and aesthetic appeal of this seating system with its unrivalled character – putting Flexform at the forefront of human-centric sofa design. Contemporary, tactile and effortless, Romeo invites you to relax, unwind and bask in its confident charm.
