Low Fat Sofa, designed by Chris Connell, is just as its name suggests. It has a low, squat profile and fat, full form that exudes comfort and style. Its generous depth and plump cushions enhance the colour and grain.
Chris Connell is known for his practical but appealing designs, which are naturally at ease in residential and commercial settings. Barely raised above the floor, Low Fat Sofa has a low profile and fat cushions and creates the sensation of lying back in a comfortable bed, while still providing essential support.
It can be upholstered in a selection of premium fabrics and leathers, from the Schiavello ColourLab palette, including Pelle’s Casa and Ascona. The substantial depth accentuates the qualities of the materiality, and the sofa can take on different characters, from restrained minimalism to rich decadence.
Low Fat Sofa is pictured here in beautiful brown Dreamtime. Ascona is a pure Italian aniline leather with a contemporary rustic appearance. It has been vacuum dried to give a smooth, aged effect with a slight sheen and soft waxy finish. Its appearance is enhanced with age and wear to exhibit a beautiful patina with time.
Low Fat Sofa is proudly designed, made and manufactured locally, and available through Schiavello and MAP. It is available in a one, two or three-seater with optional arms, as well as an ottoman and chaise.
