Peter Marino designs a soft, deep seat for Linea A: a two- or three-seater sofa and an armchair with deliberately reduced dimensions but no less comfortable for it. The compact design makes it a very versatile piece of furniture while the wide seat is very welcoming and warm. The Linea A sofa and armchair are distinctive for the extreme precision of the upholstery stitching, perfectly taut and calibrated in relation to the sturdy solid beech and birch plywood structure. Close attention has also been paid to the internal details like the zigzag springs of the seat and the goose down padding of the cushions with stabilising insert in polyurethane foam. The upholstery is available in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric and in the combination Pelle Frau® leather with pony skin leather for the backrest and seat cushions. Feet in beech with a wenge stain.
