Concept

Oblique corners reminding of ancient obelisk shapes, creating an architectural play of light and shadow. Full volumes seem to float above the floor, on hidden base. Crystal is a collection of sofas and armchairs away from ordinary standards and clichés which gives birth to a suspended and dynamic effect with no need of aesthetical devices. It’s just about smart and absolute simplicity. Crystal collection includes a 2 or 3-seat sofa and two strongly individual armchairs: one is square-shaped with bias cuts defining its seat, back and arms, whilst the other one is round-shaped and snug throughout with a round cushion in the middle. In both elements you can notice a lifting effect from the floor thanks to its bevelled base featuring the whole collection, permitting different matches and settings, home and collective spaces.
