How to be so­cial? Buy a sofa. Cer­tainly, one could ar­gue that fur­ni­ture, es­pe­cially pieces for the lounge or liv­ing room, has a so­cial func­tion of fa­cil­i­tat­ing gatherings and the meet­ing of minds. And that’s what the Avi sofa (price upon re­quest) by award­win­ning de­signer Jai Jalan (Gruppo Euro­mo­bil) was built to do.

Curvy, with a shape that mim­ics an en­velop­ing bear hug, the slightly curved seat and back­rest are said to favour in­ter­ac­tion be­tween peo­ple seated on it. De­signed to be strong yet com­fort­ing, the piece has a me­tal struc­ture which is em­bed­ded in cold-foamed polyurethane and cov­ered with bonded pro­tec­tive fab­ric. The seat and back cush­ions are filled with a ma­te­rial called ecopi­uma (flakes of polyester mi­crofi­bre) and a polyurethane in­sert.

A sim­ple, el­e­gant base of pol­ished alu­minium or bronzelac­quered me­tal com­pletes the sim­ple yet invit­ing de­sign. The sofa cov­ers are re­mov­able, mak­ing the no­tion of com­fort a prac­ti­cal af­fair. ≠
