Design is
the instrument
to humanize innovation



Pininfarina and Higold launched Spoga Fair in Cologne Onda, an outdoor furniture Collection. Onda was born to blend in different environments and, at the same time, to make them unique. Being conceived for the outdoors, the Pininfarina design team took inspiration from the dynamism, elegance, and purity of the ocean waves, the empty space created when a lock is broken, resulting in a hollow or tube wave (onda in Italian).


Inspired by the lightness of wing, the archetype par excellence that combines lightness and strength-in the WING collection, the designers were guided by the concept of physical and perceived lightness.



“Armonia" has been conceived to bring the elegance of the interior environments to theoutdoor spaces, creating a seamless and elegant living experience. The juxtaposition ofcontrasting elements is the main component around which the design language of thisnew sofa plays.
