Cassina Super Beam Sofa 551
By Patricia Urquiola
Beam Sofa System has evolved into a new version whose increased dimensions makes for a higher impact result. Super Beam sofa system also enriches the Beam Sofa System range, further accentuating its modular aspect, its elegance, its high quality and sophisticated details. Its generosity is also expressed through its supreme comfort, made possible by the masterful use of polyester wadding and polyurethane foam. Like Beam, Super Beam develops upon the same geometric beam, the model’s distinctive aesthetic feature. This beam makes it possible to create innumerable configurations by bringing together the padded elements and combining them in harmony with the utmost style and functionality. Four modular padded elements, left or right end section, middle section, corner and chaise longue, create a simple arrangement, which can be combined in multiple configurations. The elements are designed with greater depth and thicker padding for even better levels of comfort. The soft and welcoming cushions still stand out for their distinctive edge stitching which is embellished with a “curl”, an additional aesthetic element created with the excess leather or fabric that is carefully distributed during the stitching process to form elegant folds on the front of the seat and on the upper part of the backrest to exalt their sophistication and elegance. The system is completed by an independent chaise longue and a series of side tables: • Rectangular in shape, which can be combined with the middle or end padded elements; • Independent, consisting of a base with two surfaces, one rectangular and one round, in different finishes, at two different levels. Structure: tubular steel. Padding: variable density CFC-free polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. Base: aluminium lacquered in black or chestnut brown. Feet: transparent plastic. Removable fabric or leather upholstery. Side Table Finishes: American walnut, natural oak, black stained oak, cement-stone.
