The flagship of Flexform
Since the beginning of the last century, Flexform has been offering armchairs and sofas with unique designs, studied in the smallest details and handmade according to the tradition of Made in Italy. Over the years, numerous designers and architects have contributed to the creation of new products, including Asnago-Vender, Sergio Asti, Cini Boeri, Joe Colombo, Paolo Nava, Rodolfo Bonetto, Carlo Colombo, Gigi Radice, Giulio Manzoni, but above all Antonio Citterio, who also received the Honorable Mention at the XXIV Premio Compasso d'Oro ADI, awarded by the Association for Industrial Design.
Let's find out more about one of Flexform's flagship products, its history, and the characteristics that make it unique and desirable.
Groundpiece, the undisputed bestseller of the Lombardia-based company Flexform, has revolutionized the way we conceive a sofa, introducing new proportions and innovative ways of use.
The Groundpiece sofa by Flexform is the result of the ingenious mind of Antonio Citterio, who in 2001 was looking for an option of absolute refinement for domestic environments, without sacrificing comfort. The result was a deep and comfortable sofa, with a low and deconstructed design, embellished with large goose feather cushions, which bring style and conviviality to the most refined living rooms.
Since its inception, the structure of Groundpiece has been composed of metal elements, which provide solidity and durability, and a polyurethane foam padding, covered with a protective fabric. This peculiar feature makes the sofa practically indestructible, guaranteeing maximum resistance over time. It is a quality investment that will bring elegance to a living room for years.
Available in two different depths, 97 and 122 cm, it offers a personalized choice to meet individual comfort needs. The seat can be padded with polyurethane and dacron for a soft and enveloping feeling, or with sterilized goose feathers, certified Assopiuma and awarded the Gold label, with an insert of indeformable material for extreme luxury. Since 2017, the option of the premium seat has also been introduced, which represents a perfect match between dacron and feathers, offering a superior comfort experience.
"The combination of rigorous leather and soft feather cushions represents the secret of this timeless balance," says Antonio Citterio, emphasizing the importance of harmony between precious materials to give the Groundpiece sofa timeless elegance.
Citterio's inspiration lies in the awareness that daily behaviors and activities are constantly evolving: the sofa is no longer just a place to sit, but becomes a multifunctional space where you read, rest, watch TV, work on the computer, and sometimes have dinner. For this reason, the architect has introduced in the structure of the sofa some container elements in metal covered in leather, with a low profile, which, by replacing part of the backrest or armrest, transform into practical bookshelves and support surfaces.
Every detail is carefully crafted to guarantee an unparalleled seating experience. For this reason, and for its timeless beauty, many photographers have tried to capture Groundpiece, trying to express all its elegance: Gabriele Basilico, Gianni Berengo Gardin, and Maria Vittoria Backhaul have been able to tell the attention of Flexform to design and functionality through images. Thus, over the years, Groundpiece has become a must-have for the most refined living rooms, giving your home a touch of timeless style.
Even after all these years of success, Groundpiece continues to be a choice of great refinement for enthusiasts of quality furnishings, demonstrating its ability to adapt to the needs and trends of contemporary living.
