or Call to Order

An inter­play of subtly round and angular forms between the back­rest and seat gives the Gambetta sofa series its distinc­tive char­ac­ter and versa­til­ity. Designed by Jasper Morri­son, the Gambetta Sofa is part of a compre­hen­sive collec­tion of free-stand­ing seats that include an armchair, a two-seat sofa, a bench with a back­rest (two or three seats), and a two-seat bench without a back­rest. Each struc­ture consists of poplar plywood and solid fir wood, with polyurethane foam padding. The die-cast aluminum legs ensure ideal stabil­ity and come with a black matte-finish varnish. Uphol­stery is avail­able in the fabrics and leathers from the collection.

The Gambetta Sofa by Jasper Morri­son has obtained Green­guard Gold Certi­fi­ca­tion: a stan­dard that guar­an­tees maximum emis­sion control for prod­ucts designed with the great­est atten­tion to health and wellness.
