Luxury, elegant and ergonomic Italian seating furniture design for home interior furnishings.
Designed by Italian designer, Massimo Imparato, Change sofa is an endless sectional seating system with a wooden structure lined with foam,with cushions and backrest in different density foam and removable upholstery in leather or fabric.
Change sofa introduces a new idea of flexibility. The easy movements of the sectional seating system allow to assemble the requested number of units on a straight or curved line on both sides. The easiness in modifying its shape makes Change an extremely versatile seating system, be it a cosy seat to foster conversation or a traditional sofa with its units placed on a straight line; it also encourages the individual use of each seat when users require more privacy as it sometimes happens in public spaces.The long backrest widens the definition of “sitting space”. Change sofa is a “democratic” furniture design which leaves the user free to choose and express his desire for space sharing.
Change is the outcome of the research on “Environmental and Ergonomic Quality for the Competitiveness of Padded Furniture in Tuscany”, a project coordinated by Centro Sperimentale del Mobile e dell’Arredamento in cooperation with the Department of Technology of Design and Architecture, the Department of Public Health and the Section of Occupational Medicine of the University of Florence.
