The Gogan collection owes its name to nature and in particular to Japanese stones smoothed by time and water, which were the inspiration for this project.
This is how the Japanese stones placed on the banks of rivers and lakes are called to protect and embellish the banks. The shapes of the sofa, like those of the armchair, are in fact reminiscent of soft stones sculpted by the wind and water, massive but at the same time soft, on which to lie down.
As in the stone sculptures, where the stones are balanced by virtue of the joints and the position, in the Gogan sofa and armchair the balance between the elements is given by the shape, which is not too regular: thanks to a game of gravity and balances, forms that should be heavy manage to be light.
The seats are soft and irregular and the seating arrangement is slightly inclined towards the back; this gives the pieces in the collection extreme comfort and allows the backrest to be kept lower. Backrest and seat are joined by buttresses that give an idea of lightness.
