Description

Be it interpreted as liquid stone, velvet modular pattern, plastic surface, or material magma, concrete has always been viewed by architects and designers as a material with a rough texture and cold soul, to be investigated, shaped and taken to extremes as in the Brutalist experiences of the ’50s.

It was only with designer Ross Lovegrove that concrete became a synonym for comfortable, soft and warm. And in this wonderful contest, we find the chemistry between the company Gufram and the English designer. Softcrete, the name of this family of seats whose name is an oxymoron of contents, is today a comfortable and comforting sitting room outside the box.

Made of polyurethane foam, this modular couch, made up of central elements, angle elements, and a coffee table, it comes in 2014 within a new chaise-longue, and provides infinite ways of arrangement. With Softcrete Ross Lovegrove defines a new tautology: soft as concrete. Please make yourselves at home.

Options

The Softcrete Sofa is a modular system that can be arranged in several configurations, please enquire for more information.
