The FLOAT sofa designed by Karim Rashid for Spain's Sancal was introduced at this year's Salone del Mobile and combines an upholstered screen-like back with seating. The modern couch can serve as a space divider, a coat rack or simply lounge seating.
Each Float component (arms, seat, back and headrest) can be upholstered in different fabrics or a single color option. Float is available in 3 sizes: two sofas with a low back and one sofa with a high back. The latter offers different combinations: apart from the straight arms, you can choose an inclined arm to lie back on like a divan.
Two hangers can be attached to the high back and utilized as coat hooks. Karim also designed the Cairo cushions and headrests, named for Egypt as the inspiration which is also Karim's birthplace.
