Beds. Polished or black painted aluminum alloy feet or covered with cowhide pigmentato 90. Steel frame with bent beech strips, natural painted. Headboard upholstered with graduated polyurethane/heat-bound polyester fibre. Removable cover in fabric or leather.
The sensation of an enveloping embrace relished in a relaxing situation. This is the evocative image that inspired the designer in conceptualising a sofa whose intent is instinctively intuited: the continuity of overlapping horizontal bands defining the armrests and backrest, integrating structure and stuffing, with a slight inclination that indulges the body and provides ample support even without cushions, the backrest and seat returning to easily accessible and harmonious proportions. It is the cover in fabric or leather which, through a series of hidden seams, defines the structure whilst preserving the convenience of a removable cover. Slender aluminium alloy legs support the generous and plush form. Modularity makes it as suitable for compact solutions as for big compositions. This same concept, applied to outcomes that are equally valid in terms of function and aesthetics, has also given life to the Ruben bed project. States Damian Williamson, “The complete collection of modular sofas has been developed with great care and attention to detail. The most evident aspect is the limited utilisation of visible stitching, in favour of covering exteriors carefully folded around the stuffing. The generous and slightly ‘puffy’ volumes seem to fluctuate above the aluminium alloy legs, engineered to support the structure. The slender feet have been designed with a minimalist touch so as to draw focus on the soft body above.”
