LaCividina , Italy

Skrivo Design’s Pinch collection of armchairs and sofas for LaCividina was designed to create areas where people could experience a little privacy, peace and tranquility. The name comes from the original shape of the tubular metal frame, which literally pinches the backrest and side panels creating an enclosure, a kind of comfort room.

The form of Pinch was developed out of the desire to combine two very different materials: polyurethane foam, which has the capacity to change shape, and steel, the quintessential rigid material. The pairing of these two elements has produced a collection of sofas with innovative shapes. Rather than stopping at the conventional height, the structure of the legs continues and takes on an innovative supporting function, holding steady the padded walls and giving the seating an original, high impact overall look.

Pinch products can be made even more practical by adding pivoting side tables to the structure to enable a functional place for working, meeting or studying.

Pinch is suitable for the contract and residential markets. Pinch is available in four widths and with the choice of three panel heights.
