Shade, as in the Japanese meaning of “divider”. Saba has restyled this item in a contemporary rethink and found it a place in the living area. Shade is a filter, a divider, a compact system created by constructing spaces, decorating, separating, reserving private and intimate corners. The two sizes and the different finishes allow highly distinctive spaces to be created, with a choice of different fabrics perfectly coordinated with the upholstery and accessories. The soft shape without corners is the feature which links up to the lyrical design style of designer Marco Zito.
