190 Aire Sofa by Piero Lissoni accomplishes alot with a little. The lightest sofa in Cassina’s I Contemporanei Collection, Aire uses 65% less expanded polyurethane than a standard sofa. About 80% of the sofa’s mass is recyclable. How did Lissoni acheive this? A steel tube frame is covered in a techincal fabric. The fabric is stretched tightly over the frame creating a tensile structure. The structure is then covered with polyester padding and polyurethane cushioning is used in key areas. Then the entire construction is covered with a leather or fabric cover. Aire delivers on style and comfort in an environmentally friendly way. @ Context.
