Created by stretching a durable mesh fabric over a lightweight frame, the curved back of the Käbu sofa lends it a soft and sculptural appearance.

Javier Pastor, industrial designer and teacher at UPV, explains, "The light structure is dressed with a technical fabric that becomes skin and wrap. The curvature generated as a result of the fabric tension on the structure highlights the desire for a lightweight, upholstered frame. An upholstery that avoids excessive prominence."

The sofa is available in two finishes, Batyline Senso® and 3D Mesh finish.  The 3D Mesh is a highly resistant and durable technical fabric with excellent ventilation capacity that has been formulated exclusively for Expormim.
