Collezione FERGANA

The Fergana collection displays the results of a careful study of textiles, which combine ancient weaving techniques from Uzbekistan with European industrial-manufacturing techniques. The collection is made up of an exceptionally comfortable, large-sized modular sofa which can become a monobloc.

The frame is made entirely of wood. The sofa is not intended to be placed against a wall but as an island, which is the way Uzbek seating is traditionally arranged. Large cushions on the seat make the sofa particularly comfortable and snug.

    I love the thought of perhaps first coming across this sofa from the back already admiring it, then being further surprised by the front. The patterns are beautiful and so subtle, like a quietly whispered aria.
