Pixel Light, the new seating system design by Sergio Bicego, stems from the desire to expand on the concept of form flexibility to reach a more sophisticated one of fluidity of spaces. We investigated new possibilities and uses for the Pixel sofa, the iconic project for Saba, that this year celebrates its tenth anniversary. We lightened its form by improving the technical performances but while still maintaining intact its unique style that now allows it to inhabit both interior and exterior spaces. The thought that accompanied us through this project was indeed the desire of dissolving the boundaries between inside and outside.
Pixel Light outdoor: its characteristic is perceivable from the the precise silhouette of the structure in steel for corrosion resistance, very elegant in the varnished champagne or noir finish. It can be embellished by textile bands that bestow upon it a summer allure, or left pure for a more essential look.
Customizable in the combination of the elements, it allows for the classic backrest panels, the lower padded armrests for an alternative comfort or the new low table element in naturally varnished iroko wood. The main innovation that we are proud of consists of a particular seating construction technique that allows for the discharge of excess water. The frame is in marine plywood and heat-welded, water resistant canvas is used for the padding.
Production year 2020
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.
