ASYMMETRIC SOFA SERIES

Designer Craig Bassam conceived the new BassamFellows Asymmetric Sofa when he began looking for a stylish, scalable sofa that would be suitable for his personal study. He wanted a piece that would harmonize two competing needs – a sofa that would work during collaborative meetings whilst being appropriate for personal contemplation. This thinking led to the creation of the Asymmetric, the quintessential landscape sofa group, which achieves asymmetrical or informal balance using closed and open elements that appear divergent, but carry equal visual weight.

The group consists of three different lengths of sofa units, a corner unit, a chaise, and an ottoman. The planning module allows for a multitude of layout arrangements from a typical sofa format to landscape configurations where armed, armless, and backless elements can be combined to vary the horizon line of the piece and open it up to the room.

The Asymmetric’s dimensions were carefully refined in order to balance comfort with a sense of lightness. In silhouette, the sofa accentuates the horizontal with one large cushion for the seat and super thin arm panels that hold wide, comfortable arm cushions that double as head pillows when reclining. The seat is comprised of individually quilted, 8-inch square mini pillows that are stitched together to form the long cushion, achieving comfort without puddling over time. A sense of buoyancy is further emphasized with blade-like, solid wood legs that virtually disappear and allow the piece to float.

Regardless of its configuration, the Asymmetric offers a supremely comfortable sit. This has been achieved from the feather and down topper layer together with three layers of foam in varying densities, including gel foam found in high quality mattresses. The result: an uncommonly elegant, supremely comfortable component system, which marries visual appeal with planning ingenuity.
