The tan leather-upholstered Otto Crescent Sofa is exclusive to The Conran Shop and marks a continuing collaboration between British designer Lucy Kurrein and Italian furniture master, Molinari.
Designed with the warming intimacy of a campfire in mind, Kurrein calculated the sofa to offer equal width and distance between all users, in any configuration. Taken from the shape of an enveloping baseball glove, the sofa sits on a steel frame, comforting back and arms and is finished with supple feather-filled cushions and hardy elastic straps. This version is upholstered in vegetable-tanned, lightproof cattle leather.
Award-winning designer Lucy Kurrein worked for renowned design houses such as Matthew Hilton and PearsonLloyd before setting up her London studio in 2013. Inspired by Molinari’s “Italian furniture manufacturing heritage”, the Otto collection is a contemporary fusion of Kurrein's ergonomics with Molinari’s “leather-working prowess.”
