Casa Modernista Sofa
The Casa Modernista sofa is a generous and versatile sofa designed by Doshi Levien for Moroso. The design of the sofa is inspired by Gregori Warchavchik, the Russian-Ukrainian architect responsible for promoting modern architecture in Brazil in the 1920s. The Casa Modernista sofa has sleek, modernist lines with soft edges, a perfect marriage of classic elegance and comfort. The sofa works well at home and in public spaces such as reception areas and office.
The Casa Modernista sofa is available in two and three seater versions, with back cushions (Casa Modernista 1) or without back cushions (Casa Modernista 2). The Casa Modernista sofa is a new addition to the Modernista collection, featuring slightly more generous seat depth for extra comfort as well as removable covers without the tufted buttons.
Nipa Doshi was born in 1971 into a Gujarati family of Mumbai. She graduated from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1997 but she soon returned to India to work with local craftspeople. After a short stay she went back to London where she met Jonathan Levien, a Scot who had recently finished his master’s in furniture design at the Royal College. The synergy between Nipa and Jonathan clicked immediately; in fact they set up Doshi Levien in 2000 and got married. The combination of the two cultures and creativities generated a very special, innovative design concept. Nipa’s is heavily influenced by the visual culture and materials of India. Jonathan’s is rooted in industrial design. Together, their work celebrates cultural hybridism and explores a combination of technology, narration and industrial and craft design.
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.
