chandigarh sofa by doshi levien for moroso

chandigarh sofa by doshi levien for moroso
the chandigarh sofa and lounge seating by doshi levien for moroso, draws its formal references from the indian city designed by swiss architect le corbusier, after which it is named. not only represented in the shape of the furniture, the specific print that is applied to its leather or canvas covers, are a graphic interpretation of the modernist windows seen at chandigarh. moulded from foam, and resting on an iron frame much like a precious stone set in a ring, ‘chandigarh’ is soft and comfortable, while being compact, visually slim and lightweight.
we see chandigarh sofa as the coming together of modern, sensual, graphic and eccentric qualities.‘ – doshi levien
