Flexform is a family affair. Now in its third generation, Flexform was founded in the Brianza furniture manufacturing district in Northern Italy. The unique global phenomenon of Italian furniture design originated right here in the 1960s. A place where the history of many small artisan workshops that have fashioned wood, metal and upholstery since the early 1900s, intersects with that of the great masters of Italian design, trained at the School of Architecture in nearby Milan. Flexform’s roots are deeply embedded in this historical setting. In 1959, the Galimberti brothers opened an artisan workshop called “Flexform di Galimberti.” It was soon followed by their first showroom where the sofas and armchairs on display found their way, in the postwar era, into elegant buildings in Milan, villas overlooking Lake Como, and even the foyer of the La Scala opera house.
The Adda sofa features a clean, contemporary style. Its lightweight structure and generously filled goose-down cushions feature piping that highlights their soft, welcoming shapes. The Adda sofa rests on a metal base covered in leather or fabric, while the exposed cast-aluminum feet reveal their graceful, yet absolutely modern, vibe. The comfortably soft armrest and backrest cushions slip over the base using a simple and effective bayonet coupling system.
An undeniable best-seller from the Flexform collection, Groundpiece has transformed the very concept of the sofa, introducing several innovations. First of all, it is a deconstructed line with new proportions – the Groundpiece sofa is low and deep, designed as a more relaxed and casual approach to seating. Groundpiece embodies the quintessence of Flexform comfort and is exceptionally inviting, thanks to the amply-sized goose-down cushions.
Challenge oneself with the quest to design a sofa that encourages dreaming. A challenge met with determination that led to the concept of the Soft Dream sofa, one whose name proclaims its features.

Light and airy, the Wing sofa’s architectural construction is made up of geometric shapes that are nonetheless soft and free of sharp corners. The elegant cast-metal base is set back almost out of sight, giving the sofa the impression of floating on air. The soft goose-down-filled seat cushions with core insert in crushproof material rest on the cowhide-clad structure while the seat back is formed by a soft, low and deep rectangular cushion, attached to the structure by slender cast-aluminum supports.
Balanced proportions combined with soft contours and generous padding make the Newbridge sofa warm and inviting. Bases, seats, seat backs and armrests all have the same thickness and feature extra-soft padding in an innovative, high-performance elastic material, making it crushproof, supple and uncommonly soft. These features ensure superior performance in terms of comfort, durability and breathability. The seat cushions also come with optional goose down filling.
Forty years after the launch of the Max sofa, Antonio Citterio returns to one of his best-loved and most emblematic Flexform designs.

The new model carries the name Supermax and, compared to the Max sofa of 1983, has more generous proportions.
This sectional or stand-alone sofa expresses a light, straightforward aesthetic complemented by generous, inviting proportions.

The Lifesteel sofa is distinguished by an elegant cowhide-upholstered frame that welcomes the goose-down seat cushions with core insert in crushproof material.
The Gregory seating system further expands its modular options through a series of new pieces, distinguished by their impressive size, that can be assembled into generously proportioned arrangements designed to offer a superior level of comfort and are sure to play a starring role in the living room.

The elegantly tapered legs of the Pico dining table lend it fluid dynamism and a clear sense of visual lightness.

The Spello table – two sculptural bases in painted metal – spells unmistakable personality. The source of inspiration is brutalism, an architectural and artistic movement known for its rugged, raw shapes and robust structures. Contrasting the severity of the support base is the poetic texture of the solid wood top, played up by the design of the boards that echo the noble tradition of inlay work and by a subtle opening that runs the length of the top. Available only in rectangular version, the Spello table comes in veneer, in an array of elegant tones. It is also available in a version with an array of marble top choices.

An extendable version of the rectangular table is also available.
Kobo is a table whose bones reflect the traits of many cultures. Its evident simplicity and strength call to mind furniture-making traditions common to several African nations.

The Gipsy collection of tables, coffee tables and consoles features clean, timeless lines. The elegant base of the Gipsy table is made of solid wood, available in a number of stain finishes.
