A sense of rigors, unsurpassed richness, and attention to detail.
The leather straps wrapped around the steel frame of the base convey a sturdy impression as they provide support to the strong-lined yet generous cushions.
At the same time, the seating area appears to have levitated, lifted gently off from the floor below, as if the luminous line of the frame could somehow counteract the effects of mundane gravity.
At the rear of the sofa, a chromed or painted horizontal steel plate both contributes to the chic visual styling and allows for the subtle positioning of the back cushions to create a wonderfully comfortable seating arrangement.
The tables of Kristall are the natural extension of the collection, their steel frames supporting tops available in a wide variety of materials: leather and glass.
Kristall sofa is a masterpiece born from the imagination of Mauro Lipparini.
The load-bearing frame rises from a base of round steel tubing, 30 mm in diameter and 4 mm thick, to which are fixed aesthetic strips of saddle leather.
The seat webbing consists of 5 cm wide elastic polypropylene and natural latex belts at 12% elasticity; fixed to the steel base, they are perpendicularly interlaced.
The arms and the back frame are made of poplar heartwood with additional connecting elements in chipboard panel.
The carefully selected wood is naturally seasoned for at least three years on the workshop’s premises.
The framework is upholstered with contoured sheets of resilient, CFC-free polyurethane foam (density 75 kg/m³), covered with bonded plush and polyester wadding.
The removable seat cushions are filled with feather in the top and front, over CFC-free polyurethane foam (with density between 30 and 35 kg/m³).
Optionally, you can get them filled completely with CFC-free polyurethane foam (density between 30 and 35 kg/m³).
The removable back cushions are completely feather filled.
A steel back support is attached to the frame. This back support and the steel base are available in two different finishes: varnished with epoxy powder paint (available in eight colors) or chromed.
The coating is handmade using only exclusively the best cowhide from all Europe that is submitted to suitable treatments of chrome tanning and colour on all the thickness of the leather. The leather is dyed with non‐toxic colours. All the leathers in the collection are free from pentachloraphenol.
