Volage EX‑S Slim Sofa
This contemporary sofa is another product within the Volage EX‑S Slim collection designed by Philippe Starck for Cassina. This sofa has an aesthetic of timeless elegance and is an ideal fit for any project ‒ lounge areas, lobbies, and luxurious executive offices. Like the rest of the collection, this model features innovative capitonné tufting and has the backrest padding that emphasizes its extra-soft feel. Despite its slimmer size, the seat has a single cushion and a slender armrest, providing more space.
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.
