Skrivo Design’s aim when designing the Pinch collection of armchairs and sofas for LaCividina was to create areas where people could experience a little privacy and calmness in public spaces. The name comes from the original shape of the tubular metal frame, which pinches the backrest and the side pieces. This makes them into padded walls that form a sort of comfort room.
The form of Pinch was developed due to the desire to combine two very different materials: polyurethane foam, which can change shape, and steel, the quintessential rigid material. The pairing of these two elements has produced a collection of sofas with innovative forms. Rather than stopping at the standard 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 with the addition of tables to the structures to make the seats into comfortable places for working, studying or eating.
To cater to the many different needs of the contract and residential markets, the sofas and armchairs in the Pinch collection come in four widths: 110 cm, 160 cm, 210 cm, and 240cm. They are all available with a choice of three wall heights: 70 cm, 90 cm, and 140 cm.
