The structure is simple, self-sufficient. The base frame at first appears to be a square but is actually a trapezium which follows the outline of the backrest and seat. There is a clash between regular and irregular shapes in the appearance of the seat which, despite its apparent angularity, actually has a curved section to provide maximum comfort. Volant is different. The sofa is something between a Balenciaga gown and the robes of a Shogun, an ancient Japanese military commander. The base is a body ready to be transformed, it gives a flash of leg and hints at its curves. The seat wears a short, tight, flirty dress making it even more comfortable, even more beautiful.
Stress-resistant flame-retardant polyurethane foam in varied densities and polyester fiber on steel frame. Base in tubular steel with chrome or varnished finish. Optional pillows in goose down. Volant collection covers are removable.
