The Gambetta sofa, by Jasper Morison, is part of an ample collection of free-standing seats and pieces that include an armchair, a two-seat sofa, a bench with a backrest (two or three seats), and a two-seat bench without a backrest.
The Gambetta collection is characterized by a subtly rounded backrest atop angular forms. The structure is made of poplar plywood and solid fir wood, with polyurethane foam padding. The die-cast aluminium legs ensure ideal stability and are finished with anthracite matte-finish varnish. The upholstery on the Gambetta sofa and coordinating seats is fixed, and available in the fabrics and leathers from the collection.
The Gambetta sofa by Jasper Morrison has obtained Greenguard Gold Certification: a standard that guarantees maximum emission control for products designed with the greatest attention to health and wellness.
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.
