Creativity doesn’t have to depart from practicality. Designers may allow themselves to let their imagination run wild. But when the vision turns into reality, it’s all about aligning the design to the end user. French designer Lionel Doyen has mastered this skill. While his style is quite personal and experimental, he always keeps the customer experience in mind. The Kumo collection is a perfect example of how he blends design and everyday comfort. Poetic and playful, this lightweight sofa concept brightens up every outdoor moment by enabling customers to create their own refined, personalised clouds of comfort.
On cloud nine
Named after the Japanese word for cloud, Kumo is both airy and firm due to its powder-coated aluminium base and foam seating. This sofa concept with interchangeable covers comes in different shapes and sizes, along with decorative pillows, and seat and back cushions from the extensive range of Manutti fabrics. The armrests and back supports are easily adjustable and movable, transforming the Kumo cloud into a plush sofa or stylish lounger, a luxurious lounge chair or relaxing footrest.
Ode to the sun
Thanks to its modular and versatile design, Kumo fits into any indoor or outdoor environment. Whether it’s in the intimacy of a private terrace, by the pool, or in a majestic hotel lobby, Kumo will never look out of place. Large or small, the vision and setup are completely adjustable to one’s taste. Create your own comfortable seating island or combine one- or two-seat sofas in different configurations.
Its seating and throw pillows come in a wide range of colours – from muted naturals to sunny bright shades – to help create that defining mood or add an extra touch of light. Let the sun break through the clouds and shine on your own little patch of luxury with Kumo.
