An unstoppable commercial success, the Elan sofa continues to impress. Designed by Jasper Morrison in 1999, the range has expanded over the years, and now includes a pouf and modules for creating corner formations.
Elan sofas rest upon medium-density conglomerate panels, solid fir wood, poplar plywood and metal inserts on top of springy elastic belts; padded with polyurethane foam to ensure an optimal level of comfort and durability. The feather-stuffed cushions can also be made of foam, upon request. The removable cover is available in the fabrics and leathers from the collection; the legs are made of satined stainless steel or can be matte lacquered in white, mud or anthracite; the feet are made of grey polypropylene.
Elan di Jasper Morrison is Greengard Gold certified, reserved exclusively for products that do not contain or emit any harmful volatile substances.
Born in London in 1959, he graduated at the Royal College of Art and established his first design office in 1986. Immediately after this, he began his lasting and useful cooperation with Cappellini; nowadays, he works in London and in Paris for high level companies such as Alessi, Flos, Rowenta, Sony and Samsung. Each Morrison’s project has a minimal elegance which makes it strongly modern beeing a sort of archetype linked to past, favouring function on expression.
