The Ako Sofa Series stands out for its excellent user support and seating comfort, achieved through minimal stitching and sealed upholstery that ensure optimal hygiene and easy maintenance. The solid wood legs not only provide sturdy support but also extend along the upholstered sides, culminating in anchor points for the sofa’s cushions, highlighting the thoughtful integration of form and function.

An innovative feature of this series is the removable cushions, which, when taken away, reveal a hidden 5 cm wide vertical column. This detail is particularly beneficial for use in institutional settings, offering an ideal solution for maintenance and flexibility, and underscores the sofa’s thoughtful design tailored to professional environments.
