Antonio Citterio



2008 | Antonio Citterio

The Cestone sofa was designed to be placed at the center of the living room. In the spotlight are the sofa’s back and sides, parts that cannot usually be counted on to bring added value. Instead, the back and sides of the Cestone sofa are made up of a metal structure upholstered with woven strips of cowhide. Two options of the irregular woven pattern, with strips in two different widths, are available. The cowhide strips can be closely woven, forming a compact surface; or more loosely woven, allowing the underlying upholstery fabric to show through. The resulting ‘checkerboard’ pattern makes a strong visual statement in aesthetically pleasing contrast to the soft, perfectly-proportioned upholstered parts. 

The Cestone sofa can be paired with its eponymous coffee tables, with top in Canaletto walnut or ash, in a broad range of stains that create a delightful textural contrast with the warmth of the cowhide.
