The Couch. A typological construction
by Thomas Wagner | 12/6/2011
An iconic sofa, Victoria & Albert lent its name to the whole collection which Ron Arad designed for Moroso in 2000. The sofa design is based on the idea of a ribbon which is curved and modelled to create the seat and asymmetric backrest. It has soft, strong, continuous lines, as if drawn with an unbroken pencil stroke. The sofa’s internal steel frame is covered in cold-cured foam. The upholstery is hand-sewn, a perfect expression of Moroso’s fine tailoring skills.
The name Victoria and Albert was chosen in homage to the famous London museum, which in 2000 held a retrospective of Ron Arad’s work. The collection has removable covers. Leather upholstery is non-removable.
