Innovative piece: The Pallet Sofa by Piero Lissoni for Matteograssi

Piero Lissoni has introduced The Pallet Sofa for Matteograssi, constructed from lengths of raw larch and cushions filled with two layers of padding, then outfitted with cotton coating and topped off with a “feather mix” for back cushion padding. The “true innovation” of the unit is said to rests in its “languid L-Shape,” as the piece situates a pair of two seaters at right angles to one another, creating a flat and low island of bare wood at the junction, thus giving the piece its name.
