A protagonist of the living room since it was first released in 2020, the Sumo family is distinguished by its unique concave seat. Now, the series by Piero Lissoni has been developed with new characteristics designed to respond to a more classic idea of comfort.
Some of Living Divani’s favourite activities include playing, de-structuring and reassembling. These are exemplified in Sumo’s new upholstery offerings: available in three sizes (plus a coordinating oversized armchair), the collection still features a telltale slim-lined wooden supporting frame, but is now aligned to be perfectly horizontal; generously stuffed volumes rest atop this essential element in strong contrast to the rarefied outlines of the slender silhouette.
A meticulous composition of different layers – from the thinner padding of the seat to the majestic sloped armrests to the backrest that folds ever so slightly to reveal a wooden platform and slender metal legs – the new Sumo is at once sophisticated and inviting.
Sumo’s varied weights are carefully balanced by the measured eye of Lissoni, and can be totally customized for comfort — even incorporating a mechanism that makes the backrest reclinable, for all your relaxing needs.
