Isole sofaTwo designers from two different cultures have virtually co-created the Isole modular seating system via a process of exchanging ideas inspired by Japanese poetry. Oki Sato, from Japanese studio Nendo, and Italian designer Luca Nichetto, came together to create Isole for the Danish brand &tradition.

Defying the geographical distance between them, Nendo and Nichetto subsequently found a new way to collaborate long distance applying the concept behind Tanka, a traditional genre of Japanese poetry, where one person starts the poem and the other person completes it.

The result is the Isole sofa concept. It is a simple, endearing design enabling a variety of combinations and configurations, including versions with and without an “island” arm cushion. Variations include a discrete round, square or rectangular side table that integrates beautifully with the overall aesthetics. The final result is soft, inviting and endearing.
