Gloria Sofa by Paolo Demel

Home > Winners > #88440


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Gloria

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Sofa

INSPIRATION:
I was inspired during my work and I came to the conclusion that importance is almost never given to the internal structure of an object and that is why I wanted to cut the sofa cleanly, giving shape to a unique object of its kind. This project is vitally important to me, because it involved a person who lost its life in the 2017 tragic blaze of the Grenfell Tower in London. Her name was Gloria Trevisan, and she made the sketches of my project. She really cared about this project because she was a very dear friend of mine. I dedicate this project to her.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This sofa is unique and the first thing you notice is the cut of the padding, from which a part of the internal structure emerges. The visible steel structure is the same that will continue inside the cushions (made of variable density polyurethane foam). The supporting structure is therefore designed in one piece. The glass shelf can be adjusted, using the structure of the steel sofa (in the part of the exposed armrest) as a track, positioning it at the desired height. The supporting structure will be entirely in steel. It was designed to unload the weight on the ground, distributing it over the entire structure, so as not to have structural failures. Moreover, thanks to the use of magnets to add extra elements to the structure,it is possible to customize this sofa with materials and finishes.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This sofa was designed as a "quick seat" for a guest in an office, or for a gallery in a museum. It can also be inserted in a private context, a home, giving strong character to the environment in which it is inserted

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2016 in Padova and finished in June 2017 in Padova

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
for this project I used 3d rhinoceros for 3d modeling and technical drawings. The renderings were launched with Keyshot. While the sketches were done entirely by hand

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
the dimensions of the sofa are: width 1800m,depth 806mm, height 718mm, seat height 406mm.

TAGS:
Magneticsofa, Sofa, Furniture, Structure, Minimalism, Design, Padova, Sid

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The shape, the personalization, and the personality of this sofa are the soul of this project. Furthermore the addition of accessories can satisfy the needs of every user, because thanks to these, it can change shape in many possibilities, maintaining a unique character

CHALLENGE:
This project has two challenges. The first challenge for me is the promise I made to Gloria Trevisan, that is, to continue this project to the end. The design and this promise are closely tied in this project, and they are the two most important things in my life. The second challenge is to bring innovation to the field of design and to continue to improve
