About the Amura Lapis sofa:
An ancient Roman road, paved with cobblestones smoothed by the passing of time, crops up from the woods, or from a grain field, and takes shape: geometries become tridimensional shapes and, in an unique game of volumes, morph into seats, armrests, backrests.
Taking its inspiration from organic shapes, “Lapis” is the new “living concept” designed by Emanuel Gargano and Anton Cristell for Amura.
Not a simple sofa, but a new take on the relaxing experience that tries to reunify man and nature, in an almost ancestral dimension.
It is Earth, in fact, the origin of the diverse modules: different masses softened and forged by the passing of time, almost spontaneously emerging from an archaic cobblestone.
This is a new softness, devised by nature, and trimmed by Time, mellowing any harshness and allowing Man to find his own self.
“Lapis” can be applied in several dimension and combinatios, according to spaces and needs: from the most classic and traditional shapes, to freeform and irregular compositions.
A design that’s simple and refined at the same time, it manages to give a new prospective to the living and to regain a temporal dimension as the main element for man’s well-being.
The centrality of the matter is further underlined by the use of materials and finishes that hint at the “naturality”: leather or fabric for the sofa, stone and wood for the coffee tables, silk for the carpet.
The colors are the relaxing and swathing tones of grey: from the taupe grey of the sofa, through the lighter nuances of the carpet, to the deep intensity of the graphite, with its light streaks, giving it an elegant and sophisticated effect.
Seats, armrests and backrests are filled with memory-foam, to give the maxium flexibility, resiliance and stability of shape.
