The Ansel sofa, designed by architect Antonio Citterio for the Flexform Outdoor collection, received the prestigious “2021 Wallpaper* Design Award for “Best Woodcraft” category.
The Ansel sofas are distinguished by an unexpected combination of materials: fitted into the sleek stainless-steel base is a structure of armrests and backrests made of iroko wood slats. The results are striking and reveal perfect balance between the bold expressiveness of the wood and the lightness of the stainless-steel base, which is finished in an elegant array of epoxy powder-coat colors and clad in water-repellent elastic webbing. Comfort is assured by soft generously padded seat cushions, outlined with elegant grosgrain piping that can be crafted tone-on-tone or in a contrasting shade. Different sized cushions are placed against them for added comfort as well as an eye-pleasing decorative effect. The Ansel sofas are available in two seat depths – 84 and 124 cm – and in two- and three-seat versions.
