Flou Total Living

Total Living: these two words perfectly summarizes Flou identity. Today the company presents a complete, coherent and synergetic range of products for the living and sleeping quarters in the home, with a line of accessories dedicated to comfort and wellness, and Natevo, the innovative brand that invents and produces furniture and accessories with LED lights incorporated. Flou boasts more that thirty years of dedication, creativity and specialization on a continuous journey that started with the beds that oriented us spontaneously to expand the types of products and to develop articles with increasing global appeal. The result is a comprehensive design collection, a wide variety and a complete selection of items, ideal for every ambience that is furnished with style.
Among the novelties presented at the Salone del Mobile 2016 the collection Softwing designed by Architect Carlo Colombo that says: “During one of my numerous trips around the world, I was looking out the window on an aircraft and distractedly observed the wing of the plane that was carrying me home from China. I started thinking about how our perspectives could change if we were able to look at things we have seen a thousand times through new eyes! Observing the curve of that wing was the inspiration for my design of a product collection that I called Softwing, consisting of a bed, armchair, pouf and a LED lamp connected by the same common features: a soft fold, gentle roundness, an elegant curve.”
This is a double size bed that fully respects the tradition of the Flou textile bed. The strong point of Softwing is the fabric, draped over the frame and stitched like a haute couture garment. The stylish lines are joined by the soft headboard with rounded corners, the elegance of the details, the position of the folds, the precision of the stitching. The end-result is a bed with extraordinarily comfortable softness, simple yet sophisticated elegance, the perfect tailor-made product.
Softwing Armchair and pouff
The delightfully rounded shape of the bed can also be observed in the armchair available with a high or low backrest, both of which make enormous impact in the furnished ambience. The outer shell, available in a range of precious wood types: walnut, ebony, matte or polished larch, is an elegantly curved structure that wraps around the soft upholstered seat. The fabric or leather covers of the inner surface are completely removable. The Softwing series also includes the soft upholstered pouff that is the perfect footrest to extend the armchair. However, it can also be used as a stand alone piece to complete the living room or the bedroom. It can be upholstered in fabric or leather, and both types of cover can be completely removed.
This lamp is produced in bronzed or graphite colour metal, with transparent, smoked or bronzed LED glass ball, an elegant sophisticated combination. One functional detail should be mentioned: to switch-on the lamp Softwing (both the table and standard versions), there is no need to fiddle with knobs or push switches – just stroke it gently with your finger or hand.
