Luca Scacchetti, 2001
A tub, a shell, a hull, an empty open shape entirely upholstered in leather. An upside-down, extended saddle resting on fine metal stirrups and filled with cushions that follow the outline and at the same time soften it. It brings to mind neoclassical, clean-cut, unadulterated shapes and the voluptuousness of the sensual forms of feminine figures always seen reclining on them in classic paintings or academy representations, completing the classicist geometries and references. A sofa where the tradition of saddlery and upholstery combine to give a new look to spaces and the neoclassical atmosphere and their more commonplace and heartfelt icons.
