Product description

With its highly innovative personality, Freeman “Tailor” interprets the current widespread need to create dynamic, differently accessorized islands of relaxation in which to live more intimately -- like for reading and chilling out completely, or more social moments like conversing or spending time with family and friends.
Freeman “Tailor” is an orderly clustering of shapes, with one-piece seats decorated with elegant stitching that accentuates its graphic, modern personality. The sophisticated tailoring of the upholstery reveals the company’s expertise in executing extremely complex fine-tailoring techniques. The pieces in leather or fabric are assembled using a strip of eco-leather and double-stitched motif that lend a unique sense of depth.
To make the project even fresher and more contemporary is the option to streamline the proportions by choosing the “Wing” armrests or backrests, both featuring the tasteful wing design, created through the use of a metal structure covered in polyurethane foam.
Freeman “Tailor” displays a bold personality and a cheerful spirit sufficient to carry the starring role or to co-star when paired with Freeman “Duvet” elements.

Structure: in plywood with suspension provided by high-rubber-content elastic webbing. The seat structure is made of several layers of variable-density, high resilience polyurethane foam. The upper layer is made of single high-elastic-content contoured straps which, combined with the lower layer, guarantee enhanced softness over time.
“Wing” and “Mix” have an armrest and/or backrest made of a metal frame coated in fireproof polyurethane foam.
The entire structure has a breathable heat-bonded quilted fiber casing laminated to a white hypoallergenic cotton fabric which lends softness.
A special assembly was used for the structure covering (seat, backrest and armrests). The various parts in fabric were joined by using a bronze-colored strip of eco-leather with double-stitched detail.

Cushions: channeled goose down padding for the backrest cushions (Assopiuma certified, gold label) with Memory Foam core insert (temperature-sensitive material).

Covers: backrest cushion covers are completely removable in all the versions (fabric and leather). The “Wing” element cover is removable only for the fabric version.
The fabric or leather removable covers of the structure come off by removing the metal base after loosening the ribbed handles with the key that is provided.

Base: extruded aluminum frame with cast aluminum joint fittings (both an exclusive design by Minotti Studio), with a glossy anti-fingerprint Light Bronze painted finish. The metal feet also have a glossy Light Bronze painted finish. Protective bronze-painted SEBS glide (soft scratchproof rubber).

Concept

Innovating interior living space design through a seating system displaying into a variety of elements, with different features, a strong aesthetic identity, elegant proportions and unrivaled comfort.
Freeman embodies this dual identity: the Freeman “Duvet” elements feature smooth, enveloping lines and extra-soft cushions that, like a warm embrace, induce a feeling of pure relaxation. Freeman “Duvet” combines soothing design elements and especially sophisticated construction details steeped in tradition that evoke classical modern perfection.
The Freeman “Tailor” elements express a different personality, with their more defined shapes and one-piece seats enhanced with top-stitching that accents their graphic nature and contemporary spirit.
The wedding of these two spirits makes it possible to create “multitasking” compositions, with a dynamic air that characterize different moments in the day and different ways of using the sofa. The Freeman seating system deservedly takes center stage in any living space, in which to enjoy the intimacy of family or entertain friends in an elegant, yet informal setting.
The Freeman “Tailor” elements provide a charming alternative with “Wing” backrests and armrests, both featuring clean, light lines thanks to a polyurethane foam-covered structure, in clear contrast to the considerable volume of the seats. The use of “Wing” backrests and armrests adds visual lightness to the compositions created with the “Tailor” elements, making them more dynamic.
The base of the sofa is finished with an elegant, extruded aluminum frame with rounded edges in a glossy light bronze painted finish. The cast aluminum joint fittings located at the corners are a defining detail that lends an air of sophistication to the sofa base.
The sofa is raised off the floor on refined metal feet with a glossy light bronze painted finish for an effect of overall lightness.
The Freeman seating system has a wealth of couture content that strongly reflects the unique expertise the company has acquired over the years.
Notably, the structures of the Freeman “Tailor” elements reveal a complex and sophisticated construction – the various parts in fabric are joined using a bronze color strip of eco-leather with double-stitched detail, which lends the fabric a very original look. The same type of workmanship also characterizes the seatback cushions.
