Soave Armchair by LaCividina
Soave is a range of armchairs and sofas available in numerous configurations all sharing a common design trait of limited depth, making them the ideal solution for public lobbies and reception areas. The repeated use of an elliptical shape is a distinguishing feature of this collection. Layered rounded forms create a base and a seat with a discrete curved enveloping backrest.
Understated metal legs emphasise the overall lightness of the Soave collection. The matching coffee table, which features the same soft form, looks like it is simply floating on the frame. Complemented by the optional support table, Soave is perfect for all uses in the contract market.
Structure: Frame in multi-layered Beech wood
Upholstery: Fire retardant polyurethane foam, fixed covers, fully upholstered in house fabric/leather or COM/COL

About the designer
Sebastian Herkner was born in 1981 in Bad Mergentheim. He studied product design at the HfG Offenbach am Main (Offenbach University of Art and Design), already focusing during his studies on designing objects and furniture merging various cultural contexts, combining new technologies with traditional craftsmanship in order to highlight the multifaceted beauty of the materials and draw renewed attention to small details.
Whilst still a student, Herkner did an internship with Stella McCartney in London, which helped to hone his feeling for materials, colours, structures and textures. Since founding his own design studio in Offenbach am Main in 2006, he has designed products for manufacturers such as Cappellini, ClassiCon, Dedon, Fontana Arte, Moroso, Pulpo, Thonet and Wittmann, as well as working on interior design projects and for exhibitions and museums.
Between 2007 and 2012 he has taught several courses at HfG Offenbach am Main as visiting lecturer. His designs have received multiple prizes, for example the 2011 German Design Award in the Newcomer category, 2015 the EDIDA Award for Best International Newcomer and Guest of Honor at imm cologne 2016.
