UNIT is a sectional item of furniture which can be linked together, designed on the basis of two key characteristics in order to adjust to different architectural spaces. The first is that it gives a light impression. With its thin seat pad held by a frame configured in horizontal and vertical lines, UNIT exudes the impression that it is floating in space above the floor without interfering with the space itself. The second characteristic is the configuration in a square grid. The module is square, which permits a variation that suits many different architectural structures, like floating floor tiles, with a presence like a flying carpet. When the square units of the flying carpet are connected, one by one, with a variety of colours, they create interest and union in the surrounding space. The square grid also makes it possible for each unit to be arranged variably crosswise and lengthwise, making UNIT perfect for many different spaces; big, small, wide, narrow, public and home. Unit is available as a footstool, armchair and table section.
