Matic, an innovative system of sofa components created by Piero Lissoni and conceived as a platform suspended in space, somewhere between an island and a work of architecture. The distinctive characteristics, here again, are aesthetics and technology.Share

Matic offers new functional and aesthetic possibilities. Low, linear seats, enhanced by capitonné details, are joined by armrests and backs that can be shaped thanks to an internal mechanism offering structural support and comfort. The cushions complete the collection, guaranteeing absolute ease during use. Timeless aesthetic details of lightness and elegance meet with precise workmanship at the highest levels of technology and quality, values that have always been earmarks of the Knoll character.A high-profile technological exercise that sets the character, narrating a stylistic mission while logically determining its own form. Silent by nature, the Matic collection can enter any context with discretion, almost blending into the background; or it can take center stage with its forceful (though always discreet) character. Ideal for the home or for contract environments, Matic represents a tribute to original Knoll design, with a clear reference to the stylistic approach developed by Florence Knoll.
