A touch of new objectivity
by Fabian Peters | 5/10/2018
Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
The new sofa designed by Patricia Urquiola fosters a return to industrial design's capacity for technical and aesthetic designing of products destined for the retail market. The collection's strength is its almost basic simplicity which imbues it with character and modernity yet, at the same time, its silhouette has the added attractively graceful touch of a gentle arch in the frame to ensure the right structural balance of solids and voids.
With large, soft cushions to make it exceptionally comfortable, Gentry sofa's discreet personality enables it perfectly to blend into any interior décor or setting. The steel frame is enveloped in moulded polyurethane foam, the cushions are filled with goose feathers. Available in a choice of leather, woven fabric or chunky quilted knitted fabric upholstery.
