Since 2012 the company has been collaborating with the architect Francesco Lucchese who designs the Hemingway sofa, one of the company’s best sellers. HEMINGWAY is a modular sofa with a spacious seat , harmoniously combining maximum functionality with the comfort that distinguishes all Swan furnishings. The concept was developed to respond to the specific and ever evolving needs of contemporary living and the search for solutions dedicated to personal comfort. A built-in mechanism allows for a movement of the backrest which modifies the depth of the seat, thus providing two different user configurations: a relaxation mode for quietly resting when the backrest is open and a more dynamic conversation mode when the backrest is closed. The modules are combined with the platform concept to create extensive relaxation areas; volumes are visibly taut but, at the same time, fully reveal their pleasing softness thanks to a deep-button upholstery which traces a sumptuous decorative motif over the entire surface of the seat and backrest, which also suggests the possibility of a spectacular centre room arrangement. The leather armrest of minimal lines contrasts with the generous volumes supporting the softness of the cushions. Particular attention has been focused on the leather trims evidenced by the refinement of a sartorial work- manship which enhances the cushion by transforming it into an authentic fashion accessory. Thanks to the versatility of the com- positions and the wide range of fabrics available, Hemingway finds its place both in residential environments and in contract projects such as hotels and spaces for entertainment. www.swanitaly.com
