Italian architect Antonio Citterio designs the Adda Sofa for Flexform, focusing on the emphasis of natural folds. The Adda Sofa has linear crease details stitched into the sofa's cushions to imitate the natural creases that form when sitting. Flexform first displayed the Adda Sofa in Milan at the Salone del Mobile furniture fair last year. The name of the sofa is rooted from a word that describes a place or setting where people come together and socialize.
The Adda Sofa is a modular piece of furniture, crafted from a series of rectangular seats open for configuration. Each cushion is embroidered with the straight stitching across the center on the front and back to create the subtle folds. The cushions are also padded with goose-down for ultimate comfort, and closed with thickly stitched borders. The color palette of the Adda Sofas is neutral, with the available selections of either neutral ivory, sand tones, and leather selections of honey, dove gray, cowhide, and tobacco.
