A SOFT WOOD MOSAIC
Designer Daniele Lago - 2004Find more
At first it seems hard like all benches, but then it gently shapes to your form with simple pressure. The design-driven Softbench conceals comfortable padding that gently welcomes the sitter, thanks to a soft lacquered wood mosaic that unexpectedly flexes under the weight of the body.
The innovative technological mix of materials unites the surprise of softness with the extraordinary level of customisation offered by the 32 LAGO hues. Easy to transport, Softbench brings a surprising note of design to the home and public spaces.
A panel of wood and foam coupled in an innovative way gives life to a seemingly rigid mosaic, but which when used moulds to the weight of the body.
The innovation lies in having softened the wood, thanks to a rigid panel sectioned into pieces and coupled to the foam.
