The Sengu Sofa, a delicate design with generous volumes, encourages a convivial and intimate use that welcomes conversation from one side of the room to the other thanks to its open shapes.


Sengu Sofa is particularly characterised by unexpected combinations: simple lines, substantial padding and natural materials and hues. Its base is reminiscent of Japanese forms, a recurring theme in the Cassina Collection and especially evident in the work of Charlotte Perriand.
The sofa’s ergonomics are heightened thanks to the soft inclination of the back and armrests that feature an elegant quilted effect on the exterior and sofa’s back cushions.

Thanks to the study carried out by Cassina LAB, a collaboration between the Cassina Research and Development Centre and Poli.design at the Milan Polytechnic, a 100% recycled fibre, made from PET mainly recovered from the sea, has been incorporated in the cushion padding of the Sengu Sofa in respect of the environment.


This research is part of an in-depth project that expresses the company's desire to identify alternative materials to adopt in the development of its products as well as to promote the general well-being of its users.

Sengu Sofa is completed with three low tables that can be combined or used singularly.
