Certainly you kept a few memories of Salone del Mobile 2016, and in case you missed KNOLL collection, Milan Design Agenda gives you today a short Salone del Mobile 2016 review, featuring Piero Lissoni’s avio sofa component system for KNOLL, designed to fit multiple spaces.
Avio, designed by Piero Lissoni for KNOLL is a contemporary and elegant yet relaxed sofa system that can reinterpret and improve the use of any type of space. Modular and linear, with a light structure that easily complements a variety of settings, Avio’s design is the result of extensive aesthetic research.
The sofa combines functional and proportional poise, playing with the contract between the lightness of the slim structural framework and the plump volume of the seats. The sofa is ideal for both home and contract environments; at Salone, Avio finds an easy stylistic affinity for classic, architectural designs by Florence Knoll.
Avio is made with a load-bearing structure, a steel beam from which supports the seats, backs and tables. The framework translates into a versatile system that can generate benches, sofas for two or three people, a chaise longue and tabletops in a practically infinite sequence and can produce surprising corner compositions.
Avio’s padding provides maximum comfort, and the sofa can be covered in leather or fabric, completed with decorative throw cushions.

“My points of reference,” Lissoni continues, “are Mies van der Rohe, Eero Saarinen, Florence Knoll. Names that have awesome importance for anyone who works on design. Nevertheless, I don’t think we should hide in the shadow of the great masters: you always have to come to terms with the contemporary world, without making heritage into the sole value with which to approach the future.”
The sofa system premiered at the Milan Furniture Show 2016 and in the near future it will be enhanced by new elements to gradually expand its functional range and versatility.
