Flap sofa was launched in 2000 by Edra, a manufacturing house leader of design made in Italy. Created by the designer Francesco Binfaré, Flap sofa is one of the key model of the italian company; it certainly stands out for the originality of its shape and for a great functional flexibility.
Perfect to be placed in the middle of the room, it is designed to host up to six people and, thanks to its curves and its sinuous shape, it can draw all the attentions on it. This sofa lends itself to different uses: the nine movable elements allow the users to sit, to lay or to just relax.
The sofa takes its name after the flaps of the wings of airplanes, that inspired the shape of its elements. They can take up to six positions to choose to your liking the personality of the day of your sofa.
Flap Sofa has a sinuous shape but a strong structure too. The frame of the sofa is in tubular metal. The movable parts are attached singly to double steel mechanisms. The base is in brushed and chromed metal and the feet are in chromed metal with scratch-proof aluminum and rubber tips. A special attention has also been given, of course, to the quality of the filling which is realized by hand with more than 180 different pieces of flexible and breathable polyurethane.
The choice of the upholstery of the sofa is completely yours. Flap Sofa can be covered with fabric or leather, always with a back cover in Lycra. The selection of fabrics and yarns shows the originality of the brand Edra: it has both a choice of colors and traditional textures, and a range of fashionable fabrics. The different kind of leathers instead are very soft: this particular feature has allowed the manufacture to create an interesting game of seams and to ensure the mobility of the elements without affecting the wear of the upholstery itself.
Different versions of the sofa are available on request. Edra added two more versions of the Flap sofa to the standard version.
Flap Sky Kiss, a sofa which comes in leather with prints inspired by pop-art. In this version, the sofa becomes a large painting representing a romantic kiss between a man and a woman.
The Diamond version of Flap Sofa is the most luxurious one. Available in silver and gold, it is the result of the partnership between Edra and the company Swarovski. The special extra strong Kevlar fabric makes the seat particularly eccentric; a multitude of little crystals are applied on it through the hot fix special technique: it fixes them permanently to the fabric preserving its beauty and its long-lasting quality.
