Avant-Apres Sofa by Saba Italia
The Avant-Apres Sofa Designed by Sergio Bicego for Saba Italia. Flow, adapt, create void, rearrange space, receive and renew indefinitely. The new Avant-Apres seating is able to do it all. Rigid yet lightweight, the sofa comes in fascinating configurations thanks to the special and unique armrest/backrest system that detaches with a simple movement and may be positioned all along the base. A pre-and-post dance that can be staged every day, created by the desire to try something new. Avant-Apres has a sober allure and an elegant appearance. The seating is placed on a metal base upholstered in fabric or leather, resting on glazed chrome or painted metal feet. Refined accessories complete the system: the side tables are walnut wood and come in two different sizes, with the warm notes of the wood also being an option for the armrest. The Avant-Apres sofa has fully removable covers.

Saba was established in 1988. Saba has worked ever since in the pursuit of relaxing design concepts. The concept, as well as the selection of materials, workmanship and manufacture, are all guided by the desire to experiment without overstepping into excess, supported by constant attention to quality and ergonomics. Saba believes that design products should not only be technically excellent, but also respond to real consumer needs, as well as offering aesthetics to stir the emotions.
Born in 1953, Sergio Bicego left formal education and began, almost by chance, his experience in the field of the padded furniture. Fascinated by the world that surrounded him, he eagerly devoted himself to researching building forms and techniques which have borne fruit for the companies in which he worked. In 1991 he opened his studio as an independent designer and in 1993 he came across Saba Italia. New challenges and new incentives lead to the creation of the “nomad sofa”: Taos, Ananta, Limes, Nesting, Pixel. Creations that were born from reflection of new desires that encourage us to live in a less formal way, equipped with systems that enable change with simple gestures, by playing with shapes.
