The Pixel collection, designed by Ramón Esteve for Vondom, is inspired by the small elements of colour that make up an image, looking to connect the piece with the numerous possible outcomes that are generated as a result of how it is arranged.
The Pixel sofa is composed of three independent modules that allow you to create countless shapes; from linear sofas or chaise longues, to corners or even a bed.
Pixel’s main characteristic is its low seating height, designed for a more intimate use that ties the piece in with chill-out zones.
Manufactured by rotational moulding, its versatility is enhanced through the upholstery, available in a variety of fabrics and finishes that can be combined with one another; alluding once again to its name and mirroring those coloured dots that serve as the origin of an image and the shape through different combinations in 3D.
