Product description

From the palace of the grand vizier, edra continued its journey on to the vast steppes. Francesco Binfaré's modular "Sofà" - a hollow frame filled with large soft cushions filled with kapok, the silky plant fibre - now becomes &quo

t;Gran Khan" , a creation reminiscent of the primitive couches that furnished Mongolian tents. If an object's significance is revealed by its name, then Sofà's essential, uncluttered form and invitingly soft cushions is the essence of comfort.

And as the embodiment of a mental image, it can take on different forms. So an example of bourgeois creature comforts has now become Gran Khan seemingly lifted from tents strewn with skins and carpets inhabited by nomadic peoples in the lands of "th

e crescent moon".
