Inspired by the famous Beatles song, the Let it Be sofa, as the name suggests, is relaxing and welcoming, rejecting all forms of convention and formalism. This Ludovica and Roberto Palomba project also embraces and reinterprets the time-honoured idea of the Roman triclinium, where people lay down, ate, talked and lazed about.
This versatility is the hallmark of a sofa designed as a well-equipped domestic refuge, a multi-purpose space to enjoy at your own pace.
Let it Be is a modular furniture system, open to infinite configurations. The modular sofas can be completed with shelves and storage units that expand their functions.
The structure and the soft down cushions appear to be suspended on saddle-leather straps. The foot, unexpectedly set back compared with the corner, exalts the sensation that the seats are floating in space. The purity of the design melds with the precious details. The visible leather and saddle-leather stitching bring to mind the luxurious workmanship of saddles and harnesses. The structure and cushions are upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather, also combined with fabric. Alternatively, saddle-leather combined with Pelle Frau® leather or fabric. The shelves and armrest or backrest surfaces are upholstered in saddle-leather. Frame in die-cast aluminium with joints in black painted steel. The backrest and armrest structure, padded with polyurethane foam and polyester wadding, is in solid poplar and birch plywood. The seat spring system consists of intertwined elastic belts. Seat cushion padded in goose down and polyester wadding. Moulded aluminium feet of two heights with ruthenium or burnished and blasted finish.
