Cristina Celestino designs for Saba the new Gala seating system, thus establishing a collaboration with the company.


The project responds to the desire of investigating the sofa as a place and not only as a mere functional product, to the aspiration of dematerialising the very concept of traditional living and to create a sofa with a strong iconographic design component.


The “sofa” is a place of exchange, it generates new experiences and it shapes interior spaces. With a subtle reference to the retro-future atmosphere of sofas that inhabited the ‘70s, the GALA collection explores the flexibility of the upholstered object with a no gender, sculptural and sophisticated volume, which lends itself to interpreting different visions of interiors, from residential to hospitality contexts.


The central backbone is a vertical element that draws pleated curves ready to accommodate, both on the front as well as on the back, a seat-pouf element of different depths.


The many possible configurations give life to a “hybrid” and flexible sofa with which one can interact.
