Paolo Piva has an inimitable gift for creating elegant and comfortable furniture based on the simplest of forms. In keeping with Italian traditions, he is a master of aesthetic perfection, yet never loses sight of function. Alex is an agreeable, welcoming sofa that comes in different lengths, with matching footstools of varying sizes. The details are Piva all over, and as always the seating quality and workmanship reflect Wittmann’s uncompromising standards. The sofa is a good fit for small rooms, while the low-slung form emphasises its width, enhancing the inviting impression it makes. Thanks to the back and the perfectly coordinated loose cushions, it is just as relaxing as it looks.
