Sottosopra / The furniture for young and old


Sottosopra brings young and old face to face. This intergenerational seating arrangement combines chairs and benches to suit your needs. The chair-legs are inserted into the evenly spaced openings, providing a firm standing for all. Sottosopra enables children and adults to communicate on eye level when sitting next to one another.

can be arranged at right angles, parallel or behind one another – with the bright injection-moulded details not only enabling colourful variations, but also giving the construction the necessary stability for rough-and-tumble play.
