Désirée presents Ludwig, designed by Roberto Gobbo: a sofa with a geometrical form that pays homage to the radical design ideas born in Central Europe after World War I. It was in that historical period that the distance between the applied arts and design narrowed for the first time to the minimum. The dominant themes were the reduction of forms and revolutionary use of materials.
Ludwig is notable for its extreme versatility in use. Its clean lines make it suitable for all the rooms in the home and also professional interiors. Featuring parallelepiped-shaped padding 9 cm thick at the top and tapering below, embellished with topstitching, it is fully removable. The fabric is finished with a delicate tone-on-tone trim. The insertion of a 30 cm diameter single-seat cylindrical back with attached cushion, replacing the standard back, makes for maximum versatility in use. It can be positioned freely to suit your taste by adapting it to different postures, from sitting to reclining and lying down. The base is another very tautly designed detail, consisting of two parallel glides in matt bronze metal set at 90°, visually lightening the sofa so that it seems suspended in space.
