Life Sofa

Life is a generous, modern sofa initially designed by Florentine architect, Roberto Monsani. Deemed too avant-guard to be marketable at the time, it features a classic platform base and deep dimensions — both of which collude to create a supreme lounging experience.

Product Description

In envisioning new styles of living, Roberto Monsani imagined solutions to reshape the home, and the Life couch — so avant-garde it was never produced in series in Monsanìs day — retains its modern edge. Maintaining its modular and flexible design, today the sofàs original lucite frame has been elongated and updated with versions in dark stained walnut and black ash for contemporary living ideals. Designed to invite casual lounging, the supremely comfortable down cushions are now rendered ever more inviting in velvet, with softened shapes for absolute ease. Fully modular, each of the islands can be configured to suit any size or space.

Materials & Finishes

An upholstered system with modular elements, made of veneered, brushed open grain curved birch plywood in black ash and dark stained walnut finishes. Its modularity is made possible by a hidden element hooking system. The backrest and seat cushions are in polyurethane foam with feather upholstery. The upholstery fabric enhances its softness, covers the sofa in all its parts and is completely removable.


Due to the infinite number of configurations available, we kindly ask that you contact the showroom to order.
