The Augusto sofa, by Belgian designer Vincent Van Duysen, is an exploration of contrasts: where past meets present and technical innovation meets the expert craftsmanship of Molteni&C. The key to Augusto’s timeless aesthetic is the balance of soft, upholstered seats with the sophistication of its modern metal structure, creating a uniquely harmonious design that blends seamlessly with a multitude of environments. To enhance Augusto's unique silhouette, elegant piping runs along the cushions, defining their shape. In conceiving the Augusto sofa, Van Duysen started with the idea of total comfort. He examined precisely the way the body would sink into its voluminous seat, recline into its cushioned backrest, or simply lean on its elegant, square-shaped armrests. Only once these factors were determined did he begin forming the shape, which incorporates a flush metal base that runs around the perimeter of the sofa emphasizing its volume and making it appear almost weightless. The frame is composed of solid wood while the padding is made of high-bearing, variable-density polyurethane foam, ensuring maximum comfort. The seat cushions are made of recycled and recyclable PET polyester fibre. The painted aluminium base rests on the ground thanks to aluminium feet with non-slip tips. The seats represent the ultimate in softness.
