Gogan Sofa by Moroso
The Gogan sofa takes its name from nature and in particular from Japanese stones rendered smooth by time and water, which provided the inspiration for this project. This is the name given to the Japanese stones placed to protect and embellish the banks of rivers and lakes.
- The sofa’s form in fact reminds us of flat stones sculpted by wind and water, solid yet smooth enough that you can lie on them.
- By playing around with gravity and balance, we can make normally heavy shapes lightweight.
- The seats are soft and irregular with the center of gravity being slightly inclined towards the rear.
- The backrest and seat are joined by abutments, which lend the sofa a sense of lightness, so that it appears as if it was suspended above the ground.
