Kent is a piece of furniture that since its launch in April 2013 has got remarkable feedback both from the trade users as well as from the public. A range of seating for the living room with elegant and comfortable look, in-between the north European classic and the US modern style, as architect Roberto Palomba confirms: “the reasons of Kent success are more than one: the sexy and cosy shape, the right range of fabric and leather covers, the alluring design. We – Ludovica and I – were inspired by the Arne Jacobsen’ historic seats of the Fifties and Sixties, that also continued to cross-reference overseas. Regarding the ergonomic setting, making it a high-comfort piece, it is based on harmonious curves for the backrest and sides and on the fact that cushion is built-in the seat creating a unicum, that emphasizes the statuesque and monolithic frame. An absolute comfort, even under the technical point of view.”
An armchair, a high-backed bergére and a footrest with swivel base that Palomba imagined to be in warm and sensual shades since the first sketches. “The tweed fabric looked ideal. Kent is like a charming and elegant woman, with a certain determination, and as a matter of fact, in the early days of its launch, I kept on mispronouncing the vowel in “Kant” like Diabolik’s Eva an irreplaceable partner....It is not by chance that Kent in its three versions is a padded object between vintage and futurism. A seat for the contemporary living room that actually could be designed twenty years ago or even a century ago. The chair we have on offer is in Leather 0442 Fango Cat 99 w/ Graphite Varnished Steel Frame.
