Donovan

At first glance, the austere grouping of the Donovan sofa elements calls to mind the essential nature of cubism. But once seated, the sensations change. Donovan’s softness is surprising, swathed as it is in goose down, arms and back included. While eight different thicknesses of expanded polyurethane lend the seat cushion comfort that cries out quality. One of the latest Donovan innovations is the one-piece seat that creates a uniform seating surface without the classic “cracks” between one seat and another, and makes it possible to group elements together, even using sections with different dimensions, to create original and pleasantly asymmetrical compositions. If it’s true that its personality tends toward understatement and aims to appeal primarily to younger tastes, that doesn’t close the door on versatility - at ease in a modern, minimalist setting, simply upholster it in a jacquard fabric and it’s a perfect fit for a more classic decor. As to details, the eyes are drawn to the alluring Black-Nickel metal designer feet; they stand out against the floor just enough to express themselves. In a whisper, but with attitude.

The mix of elements that makes up the Donovan sofa were carefully designed, square pieces that are also soft. The proportions of the armrest prevail over those of the back; both are fastened to the seat - three pieces held close together that come alive, creating an angular effect on the outside, very functional and linear, and soft on the inside, forming a fluffy niche.

The Donovan corner element has two attractive functions: the first is to achieve “design-ability” among all the elements (end and center elements) creating an infinite variety of sectional combinations; the second is to be a “one seat end element”, even when combined with a simple end element of any size, to recreate the effect of a single long sofa, but with an individual “corner niche”. The special detail at a 45 degree angle to the back, with its soft, cushiony lines, and workmanship that, with a skillful bit of tailoring, echoes the shapes, creating a feeling of wrap-around continuity and voluptuous lines.

A one-piece seating system made up of a grouping of slender shapes that reveal a surprising softness.
