PENTA BY ARFLEX FROM POLIFORM

Tired of how square and round ottomans have a pre-determined place within a lounge setting, Arflex wanted to create a piece that could be easily adapted to any environment.

Furniture design normally requires a choice between subtle and characteristic. But what if you want both?

The Penta Ottoman designed by Swedish design partnership Claesson Koivisto Rune has a distinct rounded pentagonal shape, yet is subtle enough to be placed as desired and always look well positioned.

Through their research and development Arflex found that the pentagon is the best shape to combine geometrical integrity without having to adapt to the furniture in the surrounding space.

The Penta has the ability to fit into any surround due to its pentagonal shape, either as a traditional ottoman or as additional seating.

The Penta is available in three sizes and is made from shaped polyurethane with differentiated density. It is available with both feet or wheels and comes in a range of colours.
