This Modernista collection – despite its roots and references lying within Modernism – distinguishes itself with its ambitious attempt to integrate the figurative component, representative of Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien’s work, to the linear rationality of the rectangle geometric shape. The result, from a formal innovation point of view, is an achievement. The two designers contrast the classical composition, from the meticulous attention to the surface and material performance to the highlighting of a few meaningful traits: the central button denies and simultaneously reworks the capitonné padding bourgeois charm, while the base, revised through colour choice and the use of steel, tempers the aesthetics of industrial manufacturing. With Casa Modernista – a subtle homage to Gregori Warchavchik, Russian-Ukrainian architect responsible for promoting modern architecture in the 1920’s Brazil – the formal precision and objective sobriety of the prior models is tempered, opening itself to relaxation and spontaneity. The cushions lose stiffness, the seating becomes deeper and welcoming, the lines softened. The sofa, through this change, becomes a space where opposite interpretations of time transit: productive and disconnected, social and personal, temporary and continuous. Casa Modernista completes the project with several sofas displaying adjusted dimensions and comfort. Thought to be used in a home environment, the sofas still retain the concept essential details. Stress-resistant polyurethane foam in varied densities and polyester fibre on wood frame. Internal structure is steel and elastic webbing. Base/legs are laser cut and bent sheet steel with powder coat finish. Cushions are polyester foam, polyester fibre and memory foam chips. Casa Modernista 1 collection covers are removable with the exception of leather versions.
