or Call to Order

The Élan sofa system designed by Jasper Morri­son for Cappellini delights users with its elegantly clean, modern lines and relaxed comfort. Its elegant recti­lin­ear shape features a substruc­ture in steel and wood. The result­ing slim, profile base supports sump­tu­ous, feather-filled cush­ions. The sofa’s form features inte­grated arms that curve gently – an iconic design element in Morrison’s work. 

Élan offers a remov­able cover avail­able in fabrics or leathers from the collec­tion. The uphol­stered form sits atop two squared, u‑shaped satin legs supplied in brushed stain­less steel or matte lacquered in white, mud, or anthracite.
