The Augusto sofa is an exploration of
contrasts: where past meets present and technical innovation meets the expert
craftsmanship of Molteni&C. The key to Augusto’s timeless aesthetic is the balance of soft, upholstered seats
with the sophistication of its modern metal structure, creating a uniquely harmonious
design that blends seamlessly with a multitude of environments. To enhance Augusto’s
unique silhouette, elegant piping runs along the cushions, defining their shape.
In conceiving the Augusto sofa, we started with the idea of total comfort and
softness, meticulously examining the ergonomics of the body in relation to the seating
and backrest. The sophisticated metal frame that forms the base of the structure runs
along the perimeter of the sofa, emphasizing its volume and giving it a light touch.The frame is composed of solid wood while the padding is made of high-bearing,
variable-density polyurethane foam, ensuring maximum comfort. The seat cushions
are made of recycled and recyclable PET polyester fibre. The painted aluminium base rests on the ground thanks to aluminium feet with non-
slip tips. The seats represent the ultimate in softness.
Augusto is available in all of the Molteni&C textile and leather colours, and can be
embellished with four different options of piping - anthracite, dark brown, olive green,
and paper white - allowing one to customise the sofa’s aesthetic.
