Free, polymorphic, timeless. “The Westside sofa came about by thinking of an approach to the living area not yet explored by Poliform, ”says Giovanni Anzani, CEO of the brand. “We imagined a space of multiple dimensions, to allow people to do different things without being separated, enjoying company while also having a bit of privacy. We envisioned a place in which a person reading a book, another using an iPad, another drinking a glass of wine or watching TV, could all enjoy the space at the same time.” With the idea of permitting the creation of different situations with a single sofa, Jean-Marie Massaud has developed “a refined domestic landscape, a sophisticated yet simple system that adapts to all our life scenarios, all types and configurations of spaces.”
Westside is a program of essential modules that thanks to the nimble play of combinations presents itself with the classic corner configuration, or as a large, welcoming, deconstructed modular sofa. The elements like the ergonomic chaise longue, the mobile back and the tables enhance its functional quality. The range and versatility of the design make Westside suitable for all contexts: from homes to public areas, as well as hospitality facilities.
The formal and materic identity of the system is based on precise characteristics. Like the seat cushions placed on a slender tulipwood base, the alternation of backs and armrests in fabric, cowhide and metal, the optional headrest and freestanding cushion. The covering comes in a wide range of leathers and fabrics, while two different types of stitching enhance the forms. The built-in table is available in four sizes, in wood, various types of marble, or with a lacquer finish.
