The 550 Beam Sofa System from Cassina and designer Patricia Urquiola is new for this year and offers a range of compositions and looks so you can customize for your room. The system includes three sofa sections, one with a traditional two arm configuration in two or three seats, a sofa with one arm in both two and three seats and a chaise lounge with one arm. They can be used on their own or in conjunction with each other as seen here. The one arm pieces are available in both right and left configurations. Other elements include an ottoman and center or end low tables. The style gets its name from the beam base that the structure relies on to become the cohesive sitting arrangement.
The set has such a sophisticated look and reminds us of a look back into the 70 at what the future was supposed to look like. The exaggerated soft shapes and pillows must be comfortable and it’s fun to look at even if it’s not. The handy configuration with the table between the two seating sections is extremely useful and rather creative in the part of the designer who is no stranger to some awesome modern furniture designs.
Even the most basic combination can offer such an interesting look and usability. I can totally picture this in a penthouse apartment with some dazzling artwork and a great view.
The two distinct patterns of the fabric include with or without vertical seems, personally we like the non seem version her at FF.
The soft sided arms, super stuffed seats, extra pillows and curvy back really conform to the user offering a most comfortable and relaxing experience. See the rest of the awesome all original modern furniture from Cassina of Italy.
