Livingston - derived from a combination of the terms “living” and “stone” - is Saba Italia’s new project, because for the company sofa is the cornerstone of daily living. The freedom to compose shows itself in the possibility of rotation of the backrest which can accomplish various functions if necessary. Livingston creates a surprising effect through an unexpected use of the headrest which, with a simple motion, is rediscovered as a comfortable backrest. We accurately observed the manual movements that are usually made to get more comfort from upholstered seats, with a view to developing a smart backrest cushion, matched with a smaller cushion. The latter, fixed to the former through simple seams, can be used as a kidney rest, encouraging conversation; in addition, it can be manually rotated for use as a headrest, thus being converted into a relaxing, reading and resting seat. The seat, very soft and casual, interacts with a hanging steel structure which lends vigour and slenderness to the generous cushioning. With completely removable covers, Livingston is available in the standard version (from 178 to 220 cm) and modular version. Because of its peculiar adjustable backrest and, above all, its appearance, based on “seamless cushions” it is a compatible with modularity in its countless combinations.
