Design by Piero Lissoni with Carlo Tamborini.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
Pop is the first "infinitely repeatable" sofa. Easy to dismantle, Pop is composed of identical transparent polycarbonate single-seat modules placed side by side to create the sofa's solid frame. Ample and soft goose down cushions are available in a rainbow of colors in either cotton or Trevira™ polyester fabrics. A special outdoor edition is also available, with technical water-repellent Sunbrella® fabric and polyurethane cushions. Pop is an extremely adaptable product, perfect for adults and children alike, public and private establishments, both indoors and out. Available with transparent or black frame, in three sizes and a wide variety of fabrics.
Pop shatters preconceived ideas about the rigidity of plastic, offering itself as a comfortable and indestructible stuffed sofa which stands up to shocks and heavy use.
Kartell products can be easily recycled. In order to simplify the recycling process, the various components of Kartell products can be easily separated and reduced to elements made of one single material.
