Designer: Antonio Citterio
A successful design strategy that achieves a balance of functional and aesthetic features, and entrusts the details to the right role: the seating system Ray is designed for a long life. Modular, with two depths, with an extensive compositional range that includes linear and corner elements, chaise lounge and ottoman, it stands out for the tailoring detail of the blanket stitch that runs along the profiles of the cover, both self-colored and in contrasting hues.
Ray is modular sofa born of the precious convergence of proportions and volumes typical of Antonio Citterio. Far from any obvious attempt to be different, Ray is a modular system that starts with linear elements, chaise lounges, terminal elements and an ottoman, which can be used to form all sorts of configurations - even corner and peninsula models. Ray takes certain characteristics from “Charles” (1997) - the strong points, linearity and simplicity - and reworks them with fine details and tailoring elements, in particular the blanket stitch in the same color or a contrasting hue, that enhances the removable covers. A main feature is the die-cast U-shaped foot that, along with the seat cushions, contributes to creating an image of Ray as a low sofa - a particularly elegant piece with balanced forms.
The sofa, can be upholstered in a wide array of different fabrics and leathers, in many different colors.
The Ray sofa consists of a series of different sized modules. As such, it can be visualized in many different compositions.
