These movable, weighted cushions allow for an easy shift from one scene to another.
Brand Alignment

The curved, plushy cushions offers a cozy backrest that conforms to the user's back.  

Since the cushions are weighted, layouts are flexible and can be staged in many different situations.
Brand Opportunities
The Stage Lounge creates new form opportunities for Lazzoni, introducing more curvature and organic shapes. 

“Mixing clean-lined pieces with curved silhouettes creates tension and drama.” 

Very trendy right now, but also seen in timeless furniture.
