06/05/2019 – Traditional aesthetics and modern elements blend in Flex, the new outdoor sofa system presented by Manutti, created in collaboration with the Milan-based studio, Metrica. Robin Rizzini, partner of the studio, explains the idea behind the collection.

As the name implies, Flex offers many configurational options and infinite installation possibilities. The suspended sofas include both modular and fixed elements: ‘The objective was to use the least possible number of supports to reduce any visual obstacles and aim for maximum lightness’, the designer explains.

The concept of Flex is about connecting wood and aluminum and the different feelings both materials evoke. While the elegant metal casting creates a strong and sober foundation for the design, the wood evokes feelings of comfort and warmth, with the added function of avoiding overheating during summer. On the upper level of the sofa, the aluminum cast legs connect with a solid wood profile that serves as an armrest and a support for the back cushions. On the lower portion, the legs are attached to a structural platform covered in wood.

The legs themselves are the main component of the collection, shaping its identity: ‘We opted for an exclusive line that really determined the final look of the Flex sofa’, says Robin Rizzini. ‘Starting from a cylindrical form, the legs gradually become triangles, which, at the very end, turn finally into an oval to connect to the backrest’.

‘Flex comes in two different versions: natural or black teak. Both can be combined with soft cushions in warm color assortments. Other modules can be added to the sofas, such as side tables and floating tables, which transform Flex in a complete outdoor furniture system.
