Prostoria Story

Prostoria Story

Working on a new interior design project, I run into Prostoria sofas and I stopped there for a while thinking that there was more to these sofas than to most other sofas we considered for this living room space. 

The creations of this Croatian design brand reflect a very strong sense of design combined with an immense attention to details that almost become the center of attention.

The Seam sofa is the one we selected for the living room. This sofa was designed for Prostoria by Böttcher Henssler Kayser. Lines are pure and uninterrupted thanks to the unifying line which goes all over and draws the sofa’s shape. The visible seams, analogous to leaf veins define its organic structure. The straight outside outlines come in contradiction with the softness of the padded seat, armrests and backrest. The Seam sofa is a rather imposing structure with super wide armrests, but yet very light thanks to the extremely thin metal structure supporting the sofa. The colors available both for the fabric and the metal structure make the number of combinations almost endless and give the sofa many different possible looks.

The Combine sofa was our number two option.  It was designed by Numen/ForUse . It is a seating system of reduced form characterized by the profile of the lower side of the backrest. Depending on the choice of wooden or steel legs and optional cushions, the style and the application context of Combine varies, enabling the user to define his or hers own preferred character of the sofa.

Specializing in upholstered furniture, Prostoria also offers a few chairs that did not leave us indifferent.

The Polygon chair also designed by Numen/ForUse is an armchair that can seem familiar, maybe a little bit old-fashioned, but yet distinctly modern.

Despite its visual lightness, Strain provides comfort expected from large dimension sofas thanks to the seat with elastic bands support, stretched backrest shell and free lumbar cushion which further eases various sitting possibilities. The seat cushion and the backrest shell tailored from a two dimensional plate are put on a complex metal structure, and the form is obtained by stretching from the top of the structure to the bottom of the seat.

For my Cypriot followers, Prostoria furniture can be found at Mobhaus in Nicosia.

To be continued very soon with a presentation of the Soel d interior design project including the Prostoria Seam sofa.
