Flexform 2018 collection

Flexform promotes "good design" with new furniture by Antonio Citterio

Promotion: Milan-based designer Antonio Citterio has created a range of furniture for Italian brand Flexform, designed to suit the practicalities of everyday life.

This collection features sofas, armchairs and dining chairs, coffee tables beds and several accessories. Inspired by the theme of "good design", the items are each intended to be functional and user-friendly.

"What sets every Flexform product apart is the fact it is easily recognisable, conceived for everyday use and always easy to use," said Citterio.

"Good design embodies myriad inherent qualities like innovation, functionality and, of course, artistic last and user-friendly, because it's meant to improve daily life," added Flexform.

The Ascanio Occasional coffee table has a wooden structure and a circular surface available in either wood or marble, as well as elevated handles that make it easy to move around a living space.

Also in the furniture series is the Adda bed, which has an upholstered headboard and a "sleek" metal base that can be upholstered in fabric or leather.

"The uncluttered lines of the Adda bed ensure it looks equally fashionable in any of the fabrics or leathers from the Flexform collection and are its passport to fitting seamlessly in any style of home," said the brand.

Italian designer and architect Citterio  has been designing furniture for Flexform for 40 years. Previous releases include the Adda sofa, launched last year, the ABC Lounge Chair created in 1996 and the Groundpiece sofa released in 2001.

The Flexform collection is available in a vast range of colours and textures.

"With its focus on fabrics like linen, cotton, wool and velvet, the company continues its eco-friendly approach, but this year it is also introducing sensational textures and sophisticated shades of colour that range from the cooler tones of emerald green and aquamarine to warmer hues like rush, mauve and eggplant," added Flexform.
