Designer: Damian Williamson
“..dependable and enduring.. a comfortable sofa with harmonious proportions that sits naturally at ease within a jovial atmosphere; this is the image I had in mind whilst developing Flamingo”.
There is no need to be oversize: Flamingo is comfortable with restrained and well-balanced proportions. The designer affirms to have focused on details: then the sofa linear quality is broken up by the distinctive ‘sweeping arc’ seam to at the front of the armrest, the aluminium alloy legs are slightly inset from the sides which communicate a sense of lightness, the padded parts feature established seating places, while the backrest and armrests are formed by one single piece of the same height, interrupted by cushions in different sizes.
“The formal language of the leg evokes a tactile sensation due to the softened front and upper surface, in contrast to the more distinctive inner chamfer. This important juxtaposition creates a visual tension and is one key characteristic of Flamingo’s identity.”
