Description
The Penta ottoman, design by Claesson Koivisto Rune for Arflex, is both subtle and characteristic. Round or circular shaped objects generally do not interfere with the linearity of walls and floors, while square objects – like a square ottoman – have to be placed exactly in line with the walls. Or else it will always be out of sync with the rest of the room, causing an ”untidy” look. But the perfect circle is a generic geometrical shape and does not provide enough characteristic. Penta is a rounded pentagon, the perfect synthesis between the circle and the pentagon. It’s the best shape to combine a certain geometrical integrity without having to adapt to the surrounding order. A distinct shape that can be placed however is desired and it will always look well positioned. 

The Penta ottomans have a wooden base and stuffing in shaped polyurethane with differentiated density and polyester cover.

The smaller version comes with a metal swivel base with feet; the medium size comes also with black castors (on demand); the bigger size comes with a fixed metal base with black castors. 

Upholstery in fabric (fully removable) or leather. A version with profile in different fabric is also available; please contact us for a quote.

Arflex

In 1947 Carlo Barassi, engineer of Pirelli, together with Renato Teani, in the financial dpt. of Pirelli, Pio Reggiani and Aldo Bai, founded the company Ar-flex (flexible furniture), that became later arflex.

They worked together with a young architect Marzo Zanuso and began to experiment the use of foam rubber and elastic tapes for the furniture market.

 

In history and life of a company there are events and moments of special meaning, which are awards for merit acknowledged by everybody. Those first memorable moments in the history of arflexcoincide with the company's creation, in modest premises in Milan's Corso di Porta Vittoria. It was there that the first manufacturing and sales team was formed, but the arflex company was only presented to the public for the first time in 1951, at the IX Triennale in Milan,after two years of experimentations. This early contact with a wider audience in the context of an avant-garde artistic event is intensely significant in the company's history, because right this experimental interest, if not separated from commercial purposes, shows the will of creating high technological and esthetical level products, based on deep research and experimentation. The golden medal at the IX Triennale assigned to Lady armchair was above all recognition of Arflex manufacturing philosophy.
