Ghisolfa sofa by Raffaella Mangiarotti for IOC Project Partners
#3 of the Big Sofa Book (Very difficult to decode the handwriting of Peter Zoetendaal…easy if you know what is written ;-))
Ghisolfa is a seating system for individual moments or for private sharing, ideal for offering a protected micro-environment in the most open spaces. The armchair or the sofa can be coupled at the front to create more isolated and complete spaces. The thickness of the ribbed upholstery and the fabric give these seats a high sound absorption coefficient, making them ideal for holding meetings in total comfort. The characteristic embracing profile,the curved shape above the seat with the soft cushions increase the internal comfort by offering more room to the body therein contained. The new low-back sofa and armchair guarantee the same comfort of the seating but at the same time allow to have a look to the surrounding environment.
