It seems like only yesterday, but ten years have already passed since the launch of the tufty-time seating system, inspired by the creativity of Patricia Urquiola. It was 2005, and the designer said, “I wanted to take a new look at the capitonné and chesterfield styles, with a special emphasis on the reinterpretations of 1960s and 70s, which i love”. Tufty-Time succeeded in its intention, combining traditional shapes with a freer, more informal lifestyle that translates into extremely versatile configurations. The modular system is built around an ottoman, a basic unit that is joined by central, corner and terminal elements with high or low armrests. The result is a 360° seating solution with traditional linear sofas, chaises lounges and corner and island units. The result was one of the company’s greatest successes - not only an homage to past designs but also a skillful expression of the concepts of modularity, comfort and removable covers, created with the energy of a truly innovative spirit.
