Gervasoni prides itself on its aesthetic standards and production techniques; their attention to detail and their use of natural materials. Their pieces are crafted with mastery, suggesting places near and far. They have a special awareness of the environment which is best expressed in the complementary combination of natural elements with more sophisticated, man-made products. They have an awareness which is anything but abstract or complex, but instead down-to-earth, simple, direct and capable of seamlessly matching the unpredictable variety of the mineral and organic world with the uniformity and rationality of high-tech products
Gervasoni’s NUVOLA exemplifies just that. Inspired by the Italian word for cloud, this collection consists of a lounge chair and sofa. It is created from a multilayer and solid wood frame, upholstered covers with differentiated density polyurethane foam, covered by removable goose down and polyester fibre quilting. NUVOLA’s thick, elaborate fabrics enhance the fullness of its forms. Delicate cottons and linens adhere to its frames as though buoyed up by air. Fabrics in soft, powdery shades make NUVOLA a welcoming, familiar retreat, and the silvery and fluorescent fabrics give NUVOLA a witty nudge towards the future.
