478 Sail Out Sofa
Inspired by the spirit of 1950s seaside resorts, Sail Out is an outdoor modular sofa that recalls the soft forms of fabric blow-up beds thanks to the single bands with removable padding inserted in individually stitched pockets. It boasts sartorial details, like the trim in grey grosgrain or the same fabric as the sofa, and extreme comfort thanks to the use of SoloSoff® padding, a blown polyester fibre and memory foam-based product. Versatile and functional, with a metal frame, Sail Out offers an infinite variety of combinations thanks to the 3 seat modules available – with 5, 6 or 7 bands – and the three additional elements: the teak side table and the armrest/backrest, available in two heights, are interchangeable thanks to a joint mechanism on the teak panels of the frame that is reminiscent of car headrests. The sofa is enriched with a round pouf, in two sizes, consisting of segments that converge towards a little hidden hole designed to drain off water. A weighted cushion on the pouf can be used as an armrest or to support a tray. A low side table completes the collection.
