Twist Sofa

The design of the Twist sofa responds to the variety of ways in which people use a traditional sofa, depending on a given situation and kind of user.

In order to accommodate this wide spectrum, different ergonomic positions were exhaustively studied and synthesized into a single continuous form.

The sofa is composed of three modules that can be interchanged and coupled in many different ways, providing flexibility both in use and in spatial layout. This makes it possible to create different environments in a given space.

The dynamic shape of the sofa invites people to try different ways of sitting down to find the position that is most comfortable.

A wide range of possible finishes ensures its suitability to many types of spaces with different usage requirements. A leather finish would suit an art gallery, linen for a home, and synthetic materials for high-traffic spaces such as hospitals or airports.
