Skyline Sofa

Notturno a New York or Nighttime in New York is the name of a sofa-skyline enveloped by a Starry Sky. Sink into this soft city and leave your troubles behind as the sun goes down and the building lights are illuminated. Melt into a metropolis with the limited edition (only 200) designed by Piero Lissoni for Cassina. Nighttime in New York is a reference to 'Tramonto a New York' (sunset) by Gaetano Pesce — an iconic Cassina sofa from the 1980s. Notturno a New York measures 10¾ feet long with images from computerized weaving. Cassina describes it as: "The upholstery is in a tapestry-like fabric, replete with the smallest of details. A sophisticated weaving technique is used to produce 14,000 warp and weft stitches, generating extremely high definition images. The 3D nature of the skyscrapers is achieved thanks to a larger yarn, weaved together with the numerous colored yarns."
