The Gentry X-Light, an updated version of the original Gentry sofa designed by Patricia Urquiola, is presented again in a lighter and downsized version. Gentry Extra Light rejuvenates the concept of an elegant and compact sofa to be used in different spaces.
The project’s origins lie in the search for meticulous and well balanced comfort, restrained yet with a nod to exaggeration. Gentry is about tradition, distinction and belonging, but brave enough to gently poke fun at the negative connotations of bourgeois.
The sofa communicates a way of being, a sensitive approach to finding the right balance between discipline and freedom. The large independent seat- and back-cushions mean that the sofa is comfortable when the user sits up properly, but that it is also inviting for lounging around on, and forgetting about good manners.
Injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam and polyester fibre covers the internal steel frame. The feet are tubular steel, stainless or in powder coat finish. Seat cushions are goose down over polyurethane foam and the backrest is in goose down. Gentry X-Light collection covers are removable.
