Moroso Gentry Sofa

by Patricia Urquiola, 2011

Finesse becomes part of the design canon

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”.
