The Taos Collection consists of innovatively-designed individual sofas whose separate ottoman seats can be moved to turn the sofa into a chaise longue or bed. The ottomans are set on castors and, with a simple, efficient movement, can be used to create a deeper sofa seat. Taos has a wood and steel frame; the seats are padded with washed, sterilised goose feathers encased in cotton canvas or, alternatively, with different-density polyurethane foam. Chrome-steel feet. Fully removable covers.

Born in 1953 he left formal education and began, almost by chance, his experience in the field of the padded furniture. Fascinated by the world that surrounded him, he eagerly devoted himself to researching building forms and techniques which have borne fruit for the companies in which he worked. In 1991 he opened his studio as an independent designer and in 1993 he came across Saba Italia. New challenges and new incentives lead to the creation of the “nomad sofa”: Taos, Ananta, Limes, Nesting, Pixel. Creations that were born from reflection of new desires that encourage us to live in a less formal way, equipped with systems that enable change with simple gestures, by playing with shapes.
