rafa garcía's tiptoe sofa for sancal made with simplicity + functionality in mind

 

 

 

the majestic collection produced by sancal brings forth whimsical furniture that expresses a tongue-in-cheek aesthetic, resulting from a profusion of decorative styles pulled from different eras. though each piece is distinctive in its own right, collectively they revive our sensations through the careful curation of rich materials which stand to be just as important as the lines and forms of the objects themselves. soft velvet, the scent of leather, marquetry details, and metallic finishes of copper and silver breath life into the designs, evoking a look that is far from the staid perpetual reproductions of the past that are so often pushed as elegant.

defined by clean and rational lines, the seating combinations are based on a philosophy of simplicity and functionality, and can be used in different settings to create a calm, serene and relaxing environment. composed of generous cushions made from memory foam with extra deep proportions, the ‘tiptoe’ sofa is one of sancal’s most comfortable products, willingly envelops users in its arms.

garcía’s design is supported by slim copper or anthracite legs that are light, nimble, subtle and quiet, the element from which the seating draws its name – as if it were tip-toeing around a room, carefully finding its place to settle. also available in a chaise lounge version, ‘tiptoe’ is irresistibly cozy, and the depth and variety of its modules and arm types, make it easy to configure in order that it fits into any home or interior.
