QUILTON OTTOMAN 05 / Story
Described by the designers as a ‘quilted landscape sofa system’, Quilton serves as a central platform for living, working, socializing and relaxing. Offering a wide assortment of different modules, Doshi Levien’s multi-functional sofa provides the flexibility of a modular system with generous dimensions and sculpted forms. Its numerous upholstery choices include mono, duo, or with a black contrasting platform, with the finely-detailed quilted upholstery encapsulating the softness and volume of the foam and wadding seats and creating exceptional comfort. Quilton takes sofa design to a new level of versatility that makes it suitable for a wide range of domestic and public spaces.
Doshi Levien is a London based design studio founded in 2000 by Nipa Doshi (b. 1971) and Jonathan Levien (b. 1972). Doshi grew up in India and studied at the National Institute of Design, while Jonathan, who is from Scotland, trained in fine cabinet making followed by industrial design. They met while studying at the Royal College of Art. They have established a strong reputation for creating design that is both technically advanced and imbued with cultural resonance. They have been internationally acclaimed for their work and in 2008 were awarded the prestigious Future Legends of Design by the Cooper Hewitt National Museum of Design in New York. Together, they bring to bear a complimentary set of skills to the projects they work on. Doshi is primarily concerned with visual culture, an aesthetic understanding of the world and the materiality of things, while Levien is more focused on industrial precision and technique. They have worked on projects for industry leading companies and institutions in the fields of furniture, fashion, homewares, technology and lighting. For HAY, they have created the Quilton Sofa, Uchiwa Lounge Chair and Dapper.
