Mark Robson designed his Sakura seating for Sifas with maximum flexibility in mind, and we mean that literally. Each 87-inch-long module can bend into four positions, from utterly upright to serious recline-chair morphs into chaise longue. Or connect multiple modules to form a sofa. Even curved configurations are possible, thanks to sides that can taper at either 9 or 27 degrees.
The lacquered aluminum frame sports a removable cushion made from Hydropass, a pliable polyester padding that lets rain pour through and out for a drying time of just 15 minutes. Specify the cushions in gray Lead Chine, black Sooty, striped Graumel, or Natural. Offered in the same colors, a matching piece can serve as either an ottoman or, topped with a lacquered aluminum panel, a side table. 305-573-0848; sifasusa.com.
