Élan Sofa System
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.
