A sofa-bed with a multiple personality: Wing is, in fact, a multifaceted product. Depending on the arms you choose. Indeed, three different types of arm are the hallmark of this divan that can be transformed into a bed with a few simple movements. Alongside a arm with a completely classic form taking up a minimum of space, Wing can be accompanied by two choices of “bridging” arms, of different widths and below which comfortable and very practical poufs can be placed. When necessary these can be pulled out and used as seats or as occasional tables and even equipped with steel or wooden trays. The result: a product that makes a clear statement and one that is, at the same, highly individual and, undeniably, a new way of conceiving of the function of the arm. The seat section of Wing is formed of a single upholstered unit as does the back.
Wing's frame is in wood. The seat and back upholstery are in expanded polyurethane covered with termofalda. The opening for turning the divan into a bed is in the front. The base, practical and easy to manage, is electrically welded; the spring mattress measures 200 x 15h cm. The different armrests have bayonet hooking. Wing covers are all removable.
