St. Martin is a new sectional couch designed by Arik Levy for Baleri Italia which combines the quality of a box couch, ease of assembly and management with true compositional modularity.

As in a classic box couch an external visible structure supports the seats and holds the armrests and the backrest: it's a steel-bar with a rectangular cross-section of 5 x1,5cm which hugs the entire couch or armchair. But the support structure of St. Martin is reduced to an absolute minimum: the steel-bar visually extremely light becomes an elegant graphic line that while favouring an unimpeded view of the fabric pillows becomes the defining aesthetic element of the couch.

Although minimal this external structure allows the pillows to be independent elements lacking an internal structure, ease to remove and truly washable.

St. Martin features a very deep seat , soft and comfortable, where the slightly de-structured pillows play against the geometry of the steel-bar. The aesthetic relationship between the structure and the pillows can be a subtle one of tone-on-tone or a strong contrast of colours.

The structure is offered in 4 different finishes: chrome, white, brown-black and red. The fabrics are those of the Baleri-Italia collection, renewed and updated for 2008. The steel structures easy to assemble are highly modular: the whole system is based on a vocabulary of 29 parts. The compositional possibilities and their length are practically limitless.
