The Privé sofa by Philippe Starck is a sophisticated and attractive collection of sofas, dignified and formal in its design, yet highly versatile and suited to any setting. Both stylish and unusual, classic yet assertive, the Privé collection consists of a number of elements, all upholstered in capitonné leather. Cassina has developed a state-of-the-art technique for attaching the leather buttons to achieve the tufted effect, for which it holds an international patent, and which guarantees the quality and durability of the upholstery. The components of the collection include an island sofa, whose generous proportions, along with the two back-and arm-rests, make it reminiscent of a bed.
Philippe Starck has a mission and a vision: creation, whatever shape it takes, must make life better for the largest number of people possible. Starck believes this highly poetic, political, rebellious, benevolent, pragmatic and subversive duty must be borne by all and he resumes it with the humor that has accompanied his approach since the earliest days. Despite his thousands of projects - completed or in the making - he remains committed to never forgetting the essential.
Starck possesses an anticipatory concern for environmental implications. His profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his enthusiasm for imagining new lifestyles, his determination to change the world, his devotion to a positive reduction, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. His technological miracles are vectors of democratic ecology, focused on action and a respect for the future of both humans and nature. Predicting the phenomena of convergence and dematerialization, Philippe Starck has always devised objects that demand the most from the least.
Philippe Starck is all of the above, but above all, he is a man of honesty, in the purest tradition of the Renaissance artists.
