Perfect for: Indoor and outdoor use as it is conveniently stackable (up to four).
2. “Do Lo Res” sofa for Moroso
Made of: Different-density polyurethane foam with several soft cubic and rectangular upholstered units of varying heights. The units are stiffer at the bottom and softer at the top to ensure structural stability and user comfort.
