Butterfly is a sofa created to be center stage, as main protagonist. Since its very name, inspired to Puccini’s work, it incorporates its visual codes through a livery that reminds the precious kimonos fabrics, their chromatic patterns and their sumptuous embroideries, but also the great Italian tailoring tradition, which in theater combines art and craftsmanship, creating a real show.
A world of memories that the designer’s sensitivity makes present and enriches with pop suggestions taken from the Italian and Japanese culture. This “exuberance” is harmonized by a timeless line. Volumes and pure shapes that meet and redefine the space, seats that come together to welcome tables, bookcases and shelves that become trays.
The elements, combines togerher, creating something that is constantly changing, as if it were a theatrical scenography.
The living as a place where life goes on stage. With or without audience.
Bearing structure, arms and backs are made of pinewood, plywood and wood-panelled class E1 of different thicknesses.
The springing of the back and the seat is guaranteed by polypropylene elastic belts, fixed inside the base, completed by slabs of polyurethane foam padding crushproof (with different densities) covered with polyester wadding.
Marks, grain variations, insect bites, healed scars, wrinkles and veins prove the life of the animal, enhancing the natural look of the furniture.
Any creases of the coverings are in tolerance and are part of natural aging of the furniture, therefore cannot be considered a fault.
The model is a soft seat design sofa and requires re-dressing after every use to avoid premature wear and tear.
The sofa can be customized in size and details.
