Volage EX-S Slim sofa by Philippe Starck for Cassina

Dezeen Showroom: Philippe Starck has reimagined his Volage EX-S sofa for Cassina to create a more compact version of the design, which features a modern twist on a tufted Chesterfield seatback.

Like its forebearer, the updated Volage EX-S Slim sofa integrates an innovative capitonné tufting process developed exclusively by Philippe Starck and Cassina.

The sofa is made with an innovative tufting technique

The technique creates a dimpled backrest in the manner of a classic Chesterfield lounge. But with Starck and Cassina’s approach, the look is made clean and contemporary.

The Volage EX-S Slim features thinner armrests than the original design, ensuring ample seating space within the more compact sofa.

A wide array of fabric and leather options exist for the upholstery

With a new 75-centimetre depth, the piece suits smaller spaces such as lounges and executive offices as well as larger lobbies.

The sofa comes in three sizes from one-seater to three-seater and is available in a range of fabric and leather upholstery options.
