By Soraya Pla
The Abano sofa is a timeless and versatile piece with an elegant fan shaped silhouette. The seat back offers comfort as well as a pleasing aspect thanks to its exceptional upholstery.
Soraya Plas's background as a fashion designer leads her to experiment in a very natural, very normal way, with patterns, cuts, seams. Always creating shapes that are very subtle and elegant, like those of any dress. She transferred this to her role in dressing the Habitat fair, with a timeless, versatile sofa with a very elegant design. Inspired by the tailoring and the shape of fans, she created a pleated backrest to be able to highlight the upholstery and Alexandra's good workmanship and tailoring.
The Abano sofa is a piece with a high degree of individuality. It is produced in a wide range of upholsteries and wood finishes for the beech base.
Soraya Pla feels the permanent need to create a safe space for her creativity. She is idealistic and advocates for a romantic and human design thinking, respecting above all the past, to which she has given great importance since her beginnings and for which she feels a real attraction, thus creating a very personal language.
