Designed Patricia Urquiola
A project whose origins lie in the search for meticulous and well-balanced comfort, restrained yet with a nod to exaggeration. Gentry is about tradition, distinction and belonging but brave enough to gently poke fun at the negative connotations of ‘bourgeois’. Above all the sofa communicates a way-of-being, a sensitive approach to finding the right balance between discipline and freedom. The large independent seat- and back-cushions mean that the sofa is comfortable when the user sits up properly but that it is also great for lounging around on, and forgetting about “good manners”.
Injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam and polyester fiber over internal steel frame. Front-back to-leg base is tubular steel with chrome or varnished steel powder coat finish. Back, armrest and optional cushions are goose down. The Gentry collection covers are removable.
