Fiori fabric (2017)
Pierre Gonalons designed an exclusive fabric for covering Mantilla sofa in collaboration with Pierre Frey. Fiori fabric is a tribute to Dino Gavina’s history: from Fiori Futuristi to Bauhaus and Kinetic Art, his passions in the 70s.
Mantilla suits to the silence and quiet elegance of the morning light while in the evening it’s right for very large or smaller rooms. So mutable and perfect to change its cloth in a flash, it can be dressed up for a dinner and easily undressed if it gets dirty, every day in a new guise.
Mantilla was so called because of the mantle which covers it, thus distinguishing its look. The idea comes from an ancient memory, that is taking care of the furniture of the holiday mansions by covering them with fabrics during the long winter months.
Each piece has its cloth which is perfectly contoured on the structure and hooked by means of suitable pressure buttons, so that it’s easily replaceable.
