La Michetta is a sofa made by the great Italian designer Gaetano Pesce for the brand Meritalia.
The name of this curious item of furniture is inspired by a special type of very simple and cheap bread typical of Milan, michetta.
Once baked, these loaves of bread never have the same shape and it was this characteristic that influenced the structure of the sofa designed by the great Gaetano Pesce.
The components have a square shape made of a soft material padded in polyurethane foam and synthetic padding and equipped with a special spring system placed at the bottom in order to provide greater comfort to the seat.
The upholstery is fixed to the padding with buttons made of a plastic material in tone with the colour of michetta.
With its original and extravagant structure, this sofa is an entertaining item of furniture able to adapt perfectly to our lifestyle and ideal for furnishing modern and informal settings.
