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 fibre over internal steel frame. Feet are tubular steel, stainless or powder coat finish. Seating cushions are goose down over polyurethane foam. Backrest are in goose down. Gentry X-Light collection covers are removable
