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 dematerializing 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
new 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.


In a collective utopian imagination, the name Gala is associated to the concept of elegance
and sophistication
, but Gala is also an ornament, a decoration that is created with a rippled
textile band and in our case, Gala becomes the structure of the upholstery itself. Gala is also
one of the planets in Star Wars and an indirect tribute to the world of stars, to the optimism
and the avant-garde that characterized that era.
