A sofa which is also a chaise-lounge, a welcoming and comfortable nest. The Scarlett steals the show, its eye-catching circular form an invitation to relax. A project very much in line with Jean-Marie Massaud’s style, the Scarlett combines architectural geometries with full and soft volumes. The piece is surrounded by a steel ring which supports a system of Cuoio Saddle Extra leather straps. Each strap is decorated with markings and edging which echo the complex processing of the highest quality leather belts and goods. The straps create a frame which functions both as a backrest and armrest in an elegant lattice which hosts the well-padded goose down and polyurethane foam seat. Goose down is also used in the large backrest cushions, which in turn are liberally covered with loose square and rectangular cushions. All of the cushions are upholstered in fabric or Pelle Frau® Nest, Soul, Century or Color System leather. The brushed and burnished finish gives the steel a material depth and a warmth which combine discreetly with the Cuoio Saddle Extra leather straps, decorated with meticulous markings and edging. Between the straps, the interplay between solids and voids gives the overall design breathing space and offers a glimpse of the leather and fabric of the cushions. The seat’s frame is made of solid beech wood. The Scarlett also features eight castors which allow the sofa to rotate through 360°.
