Sail Out Sofa

Rodolfo Dordoni: a sophisticated urban terrace


Today outdoor furniture doesn’t only need to perform, it also requires aesthetics. Sail Out is a modular, extremely flexible upholstered sofa with an ironic character.”

Rodolfo Dordoni

Rodolfo Dordoni takes his inspiration from the spirit of the 1950s holiday resorts for the outdoor sofa project Sail Out. Extremely comfortable, this modular sofa is reminiscent of the soft shape of the inflatable canvas mattresses created thanks to the individually padded strips inserted into stitched pockets in the upholstery.


Versatile and functional, Sail Out is composed of three modules for the seat and three related elements that together create an infinite variety of combinations: the seat cushion is available with 5 padded strips (160cm), 6 padded strips (192cm) or 7 padded strips (224cm) while the teak side-table and armrest/backrest, available in two heights, are interchangeable thanks to an interlocking mechanism fitted in the structure’s teak panels similar to that of a car seat’s headrest.

A revolution for outdoor furniture: the sofa boasts visual elegance thanks to sartorial details like the border in grey gros-grain or in the same fabric as the sofa which outline its profile, in addition to the great comfort created by the air blown polyester fibre and memory foam in the SoloSoff® material used in the padding.
