The Couch. A psychoanalytical fantasy
by Thomas Wagner | 11/29/2011
Miss Sarajevo is a sofa inspired by the Italo-Bosnian designer's roots. Its creative process encompasses the contiguity of diverse cultures typical of Sarajevo. The city with its great beauty and turbulent past gave the inspiration for this sofa, designed and enhanced with a feminine touch (Miss) and by a gipsy, multicultural note.
"An ideal world that lives on, in the sofa, in a memory of living rooms with the aroma of Turkish coffee, of rooms decked in lace ornaments, of jambolijas (woollen shaggy blankets), of carved wooden tables and the endless variety of handmade tablecloths and napkins which covered them", says Karmelina Martina.
The sofa has a very linear, rigid shell holding long, low cushions. Chrome-plated tube metal feet. The upholstery is in a choice of solid or multi colours, in layers reminiscent of the coloured bands (often red) copied from women's dresses which were placed on the backrest to protect the fabric.
