A living room system designed to define the domestic landscape in a fluid, flexible manner. The first project designed by Antonio Citterio for Cassina is a modular sofa that embodies timeless elegance and style. 

Esosoft consists of an aluminium exoskeleton and a shell with an organic silhouette upon which soft cushions are placed. Its shape is reminiscent of the concept of casual comfort typical of the 1960s, while the materials and construction techniques are contemporary, purposefully chosen with sustainability in mind.
