10/06/2020 - Oltremare is the new sofa designed by Antonio Marras and produced in collaboration with Saba. A sinuous silhouette, full of history and recollections, it overflows with reminiscences and visions that speak of a distant time and place.
 
A sofa can accompany us along the fascinating journey of our life, “it becomes part of us, like a friend staying over, staying so well that he doesn’t want to leave again.” This is how Antonio Marras presents something so dear to him that he defines it as a “sacred idol”, something that speaks of his homeland, about the sea surrounding it, but also of its history. “It reminded me of Capo Caccia, a promontory I can see from my window, the dormant giant dominating the horizon.'

Oltremare is a space with no boundaries, a place that calls for being reinvented. Oltremare is a confluence of classic and the modern elements, a tamed curve forming a wave. It folds and creates a haven. It offers escape. In its utopian world, Saba has always been investigating the relation between curved lines and the act of sitting down, between asymmetrically shaped backrests and the pleasure of comfortable seats, dismissing the rectangular schemes and sober lines that characterize most designer sofas.
 
With only 225cm, Oltremare offers a sweet stylistic landscape and, despite its contained dimensions, allows for various seating solutions – some of them surprising, all of them comfortable. The soft seat and the welcoming backrest, which is less rigid than it seems at first glance, are characteristics that make it a prodigy of ergonomics.
 
The sofa’s asymmetric curves are also inherent in the Oltremare armchair, a comfortable resting place. The essential lines of its slim varnished wood base accentuate the armchair’s captivating silhouette. A padded bench completes the collection.

Oltremare is a seating systems that, while beckoning to the past, reveals an essentially contemporary personality, thus allowing for various interpretations. From whatever angle it is viewed, it entices by creating curiosity and constantly offering a new sense of splendor.
 
Oltremare might become the place you turn to when you long to be at home.
