influenced by ‘la linea’ (the line), an italian animated TV series (created by osvaldo cavandoli in 1969), italian designer luca nichetto wanted to create a sofa with a back, that when combined in greater numbers, forms a line to create continuity. his latest piece ‘linea’ for offecct was presented at the stockholm furniture fair 2013, and introduces this possibility giving architects and interior designers the opportunity to play with the seating elements’ graphic details as a means of combining the modules in an additional way. small tables link the modules together to provide functionality, making ‘linea’ adaptable and flexible for use in various sized rooms. the result – a piece of furniture with proportions that wander between a sofa and a bench.
