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.
