Mauro Lipparini, 2005
The design of the Keen sofa—its geometry, its volume, its overall sensibility—speaks a clear message: one of elegant relaxation. Its stylistic language is direct, avoiding all unnecessary complications and distractions: the visual impression of the base, slightly raised from the ground, is reinforced by a powerful, uninterrupted running line. The rigorously fashioned, plush cushions and bold, cubistic armrests further enhance the effect. Each element serves the compelling stylistic logic of Keen, even as it communicates an immediate and natural sense of comfort.
Pure, simple and defined volumes in a well-pondered sense of rigour, friendly and pleasant. It creates architectural night atmospheres, very reassuring. A line in metal tubular underlines the refined and spontaneous taste of Keen.
