At Milan Design Week 2023, Natuzzi Italia presented the new collection The Circle of Harmony – Comfortness, in which international designers:inside have explored the theme of “comfort”.
“Comfort” is derived from the Old French word “confort” and means “that which gives strength”. It is interpreted as a way of life, as an intimate and personal aspect, as a means of drawing strength and well-being, as an unavoidable consideration when it comes to taking valuable time for oneself and one’s relaxation. Together with BIG Studio – Bjarke Ingels Group, Fabio Novembre, Enrique Martí, Simone Bonanni and Sebastiano Tosi have collaborated on Comfortness.
“In recent years, the home has become a place where we recuperate our energy and where well-being takes on an increasingly important role. Everything that belongs to this space – structures, materials and colours – represents comfort, which has always been an essential element for Natuzzi, expressed through attention to the product and visual comfort with aesthetically soothing shapes,” comments Pasquale Junior Natuzzi, Chief Creative Officer.

The seat and back cushions rest gently on the inner structure of the sofa, exuding a cosy atmosphere that invites you to sit comfortably; the soft armrest on either side extends the reclining surface when needed. Colle is a modular system consisting of an armchair module, two- or three-seater versions.

In space, Splash captures the exact moment when a drop of water falls onto a surface. The side sections of the sofa are curved upwards, making for particularly comfortable seating. “Splash embodies the spirit of eternal, formless, uncontrollable, flowing water, it literally embraces its guests and at the same time is immediately recognisable with its concise design”, says Enrique Martì.

Radice is a modular system designed by Sebastiano Tosi for Natuzzi Italia. Radice is made of wood and metal and is designed to be light and adaptable to different needs and spaces. Its modular identity and the possibility of fixing it to the ceiling or to the wall allow for individual uses.

Wellbe is a sofa that stands out for its comfortable and timeless design. Thanks to the triple-motion system, with which the seat, backrest, footrest and headrest can be adjusted independently of each other, every part of the body can relax.
