The new upholstered Dock sofa system by Piero Lissoni is a safe haven in the home. The Dock’s shape is based around a solid platform which supports the eclectic compositions that span horizontally. The platform is a dynamic element, which extends for the sofa’s entire length to form a base. The narrower armrest is available in two depth sizes and is generously padded like the backrest. The cushions play with sizes and proportions, making it possible to create double-sided, corner and chaise longue compositions, with or without backrests which are suitable for the centre of the room or more traditional settings Dock can also be developed vertically and is equipped with accessories that allow to create a varied landscape. It is in fact possible to insert extra elements between the seat cushions such as comfortable padded armrests, while slender service elements can be placed on the platform. These supporting elements for the body and objects provide further choices, for a visual rhythm which gives additional possibilities to experience and conceive the system. The armrest and seat cushions have elegant tone-on-tone stitching. In addition to the classic B&B Italia fabric and leather upholstery range, two new exclusive fabrics have been designed for Dock. The comfortable soft padding creates a peaceful harbour, which can be further defined by the possibility to select from different depths and heights. Three depths that can be combined with a 41 cm seat height, or with a lower 27 cm version which is almost ground level to create an far eastern style seat. After spending some time on Dock, you can leave the port and set sail for unfamiliar places, rested, and refreshed.
