Olivia_Gradi Living
Olivia was derived from the challenge of creating a product as complex as a traditional sofa thought for the Northern European market, with a new and innovative vision with a focus on the environment. In order to stick to the design brief, only eco-friendly and recyclable materials were selected. The outercasing is formed by the use of paper stone and from regenerated carded fabric. The former is achieved through the use of recycled paper and it is used for panelling and the armrests. As for the carded fabric covering, we have obtained the most ancient traditional Prato textiles, using carded wool or regenerated cotton. This particular fabric comes from recycled wool or cotton used clothing, which (thanks to carding) is given a new life, thus creating new textiles. All the patterns and fabrics aim to rediscover the most classic of Anglo-Saxon styles in a contemporary way.
