Bridge unites the simplicity of shapes with the elegance of details. This is an upholstered sofa that despite the usual, widely-used shapes has a touch of the unusual about it in the care taken over details: the shaped head cushion, the gentle slant to the end part of the back, the separation of the foot from the actual sofa. Bridge generates all the solutions peculiar to a complete, modular range of seating, in which each part is designed, however, as a piece on its own with its own unmistakable, decisive formal definition.
The load-bearing frame is made in poplar heartwood with some connecting elements in poplar plywood; the wood is seasoned “naturally” for at least three years in stacks on the company’s premises. Dap joints unite the various parts of the frame with securing cylindrical dowels. The seat webbing consists of elastic polypropylene and natural latex belts in two sizes and with different elasticity. Belts 9 cm wide - with 20% elasticity – are fixed parallel to each other and perpendicularly to the length of Bridge; these are alternately crossed by 5 cm wide belts with 80% elasticity. The framework is upholstered with contoured sheets of resilient CFC-free, polyurethane foam (density between 40 and 50 kg/m3), covered with bonded plush and polyester wadding. The seat cushion is made with polyurethane foam with a density of 30kg/m3. The moveable back cushion is in “Tecnolat”, a mixture of 100% silicon-coated hollow staple polyester and natural latex foam cut into small lozenge-shaped pieces (this new material gives the same softness as feathers while having a “memory” effect, in other words, after pressure has been exerted on the cushion it automatically returns to its initial condition without having to plump it up manually). The armrest cushions have 100% feather filling. The supports are in drawn steel stove-enamelled with epoxy powder paint and have a leather strip attached on the part touching the floor.
