the arketipo ‘mayfair’ sofa by leonardo dainelli



at the salone del mobile 2017, arketipo also presents the ‘mayfair’ sofa designed by leonardo dainelli, which as its name suggests, oozes in high class and exclusivity. the modern piece stuns with a theatrical attitude thanks to its large and comfortable form, and its adjustable back. conveying an even more sophisticated appeal, the ‘mayfair’ is suited in velvet, displaying a very fashionable image.

the arketipo ‘manta’ armchair by giuseppe viganò



designed by giuseppe viganò, arketipo’s ‘manta’ armchair was ‘born to astonish’ and expresses a very provocative and strong personality. the chaise longue enables multiple sitting positions to provide an enveloping and personal experience. this is a result of the furniture’s more informal and lounge-like form, as dominated by its curved arm, yet still imposes an elegant appearance with its choice of material.

the form conveys elegance yet extreme comfort due to its soft and undulating curves


the arketipo ‘barracuda’ by giuseppe viganò



as a modern armchair with a slim shape, the ‘barracuda’ by giuseppe viganò is defined by its thinness and strong materials. lightness is expressed through its minimal feet and its suspended seat that floats seemingly impossible with complete capability. furthermore, its neoprene back – a fabric used for diving suits – is comfortable, elastic and highly resilient.
