Esedra Sofa

The Ancient Romans had a name for the semi-circular forms seen on both exteriors and interiors of their buildings – the exedra. Nichetto Studio’s Esedra Sofa revives this fixture for the present. Available in high and low-back versions, it features a distinct rounded backrest that resembles the weave of a wicker basket. Given a brief that specified the use of synthetic fibre, Luca Nichetto decided to combine this material with metal legs and fabric upholstery to create a dialogue between the components.
