The Gogan Sofa is a monolithic modular sofa system designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso. The design is inspired by pebbles on riverbanks, worn smooth by the flow of water and often featured in Japanese ornamental gardens. The organic nature of the design is emphasised by the irregular shape of the seat and back, extra smooth edges and concealed seams. The buttress-like frame, visible at the back of the sofa, creates a sense of lightness by lifting the seat off the floor and creating a gap between the seat and the backrest. The result is a beautifully sculptural sofa which feels monumental and light at the same time, perfect for use in both residential and public areas.
Gogan is a modular sofa system with different elements that can be combined to create multiple configurations. The covers of the sofa (which are not removable) can be upholstered in a huge range of fabrics, including leathers and COM. The Gogan sofa is especially attractive when upholstered in a specially designed fabric which mimics the textures of stone surfaces. Please see the Product Tech Sheet for more details and contact us for more information on available options and advice on fabrics.
Patricia Urquiola is one of the most influential furniture designers working today. She was born in Oviedo in Spain but now lives and works in Milan. Urquiola trained as an architect and worked with Achille Castiglioni and Piero Lissoni before starting her own studio in 2001. She has since designed numerous products for leading furniture brands including Moroso, B&B Italia, Molteni & C and Kartell. Urquiola’s designs are unconventional, emphatic and experimental; blending humanist sensibilities and technical expertise – qualities that also inform her work as an architect.
Moroso is, without doubt, one of the best furniture brands in the world. Under the creative direction of Patrizia Moroso, the brand combines its manufacturing expertise (especially in sofas and seating) with creative input from leading designers such as Patricia Urquiola, Ron Arad and Nendo to create a broad range of furniture of unmatched quality and creativity. Moroso products work well for both private and public spaces and are ideal for making a strong design statement.
