My Beautiful Backside Sofa
My Beautiful Backside is a beautifully extravagant sofa designed by Doshi Levien for Moroso. The design is inspired by a miniature painting of an Indian princess in her palace, sitting on the floor surrounded by piles of cushions; hence the backrest of the sofa in the shape of multiple cushions and the profusion of scatter cushions on the seat. The rear of the sofa is richly embellished with metallic foils and oversized symbols, creating an opulent ambience in line with the sofa's Indian inspiration.
My Beautiful Backside comes in 4 different sizes, ranging from width of 160 cm to 307 cm. In addition there are 3 different styles of scatter cushions to choose from. The sofa is available in 13 different fabric combinations, all carefully selected by the designers in line with the Indian theme.
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.
