Sofa, design by Gianni Pettena
The design of this sofa derives from the experience of living in a large place, originally a 19th—century atelier for artists, where the furniture had to be conceived on the scale of the place and not on a human scale. It is an object that dialogues with the volume of the overall space and takes into account the fact that that is where it is used. The sofa is a simple, original form, a womb where everything happens or has already happened, but which still suggests possibilities, other things that can happen there. It is an object that breaks up form as it breaks up function; it acquires meaning when the clean geometry of the initial status quo is upset by equally ungrammatical functions.
