GIOPAGANI chooses Kirkby Design for the launch of the new "Je T’Attends" sofa, available exclusively at Harrods
The iconic sofa crafted by Maison GIOPAGANI will be exclusively available at Harrods, adorned in Kirkby Design fabric.
Gio Pagani, the celebrated eclectic architect and designer has created a limited-edition “Je T’Attends” sofa encompassing geometric shapes, characterizing them with a personal and unexpected look, synonymous with Maison GIOPAGANI’s philosophy.
The collaboration with Kirkby Design is symbiotic to the sartorial approach of the brand, which combines timeless shapes with high-end materials, giving life to products that are truly unique. The fabrics selected by Gio Pagani to dress the iconic “Je T'Attends” sofa, together with the Déjà Vu chair and stool, were created by London textile editor Kirkby Design in collaboration with the pattern designer duo Eley-Kishimoto. The collaboration celebrates a common passion for patterns and geometries, channeling a sense of the creative confidence of the 1970’s but not repeating it. Gio Pagani explains that when imagining his creations he "thinks of simple shapes and researched materials that can dress them giving the object the chance to interpret infinite styles".
Harrods are the exclusive partner to showcase “Je T’Attends" sofa, which will be unveiled the next 24th August on the third floor of the Department Store. The sofa is the main piece of the GIOPAGANI Capsule Collection "Esprit Noir", which will enrich the preciousness of the viscose velvet "Origami Rockets" by Kirkby Design: a complex geometric pattern composed of simple triangular shapes. The three-dimensional appearance of the design is accentuated through the alternation of a cut and uncut jacquard velvet weaving technique and – in the version selected by Gio Pagani – by the chromatic contrast of black and white.
The Déjà Vu chair and stool complete the special collection, for which the Maison has chosen respectively “Origami Rocketinos”, a scaled down pattern version of the fabric used on the sofa, and "Zig Zag Birds", a bright satin and soft chenille defining the simple and sinuous shapes that characterize the GIOPAGANI “Esprit Noir” Capsule Collection and ironically reinterpret the classic hound’s-tooth pattern.
