VINCENT VAN DUYSEN
The structural elements of Jan, made of metal, with pewter or copper finishes, bring lightness and sobriety to the volumes, while the eucalyptus or oak woods, the stones and the glass, used for the surfaces, elegantly re-design their proportions.
The design allows both an erect and a more relaxed position by resting on one of the wings of the armrest. The formal balance results from the constant thickness of the body and by the profile of the seat, which is sinuous at the top and ends in the light steel frame. Its removable covers have metal zips on the back, which becomes a decorative motif.
A successful design strategy that achieves a balance of functional and aesthetic features, and entrusts the details to the right role: the Ray seating system is designed for a long life. Modular, available in two depths, with an extensive compositional range that includes linear and corner elements, a chaise lounge and ottoman. It stands out due to the tailoring detail of the blanket stitch that runs along the profiles of the cover, both in tonal and in contrasting hues.
DESIGNED BY ANTONIO CITTERIO
The centerpiece of modern lifestyle, the Charles has become a hallmark in the world of design. The light feeling especially conveyed by the essential design of the “inverted “L”- shaped feet, along with a single seat-cushion and a series of free cushions placed on the backrest is the distinctive feature of a sofa that has met with boundless success. The airy shape and simple profile make it, almost by contrast, extremely rich and innovative from a spatial standpoint, a system that encourages the creation of ever new compositions. The Charles includes an extensive family of elements that can meet every furnishing requirement, even the most personal demand for comfort.
