Two sides of the same coin. Inside the variegated collection of the company Gallotti&Radice, the Audrey Motion and Elissa sofas are like accomplices, through existing in an antithesis of forms. Their juxtaposition based on curved forms of the former and straight lines of the latter simply brings out their uniqueness, enhancing the company’s offerings.
Based on a virtually infinite line, Audrey Motion is the evolution of one of the company’s bestsellers, now revised by Massimo Castagna to accentuate its sinuous, ‘moving’ shape. A modular structure created for different configurations offers the possibility of larger measurements and more or less wide curvatures, while conserving the identity and character of the sofa, where the sweeping form encourages conversation and total convivial relaxation. Audrey Motion has a black lacquered wooden base, which combined with the absolute comfort of the abundant padding (covered in fabric or leather) make this model suitable for all contexts: residential, public areas, hospitality.
Dainelli Studio gives the silhouette of Elissa, especially in the armrests, precise overhangs that protrude over the lower part, enhancing the brass feet and above all ‘raising’ the entire figure in a rational, rigorous whole. With the backs, they form a U-shaped perimeter interrupted by vertical stitching – another distinctive feature – which also returns on the seat cushions. The forceful aesthetic research of the design duo triggers a balance of impeccable proportions, for a versatile model that can be placed at the center of the room or against the wall.

Both models are enhanced and covered by the new fabric collection of Gallotti&Radice, featuring two new tones – neutral and green – for the Jacquard fabrics with their geometric design. Next comes Joy & Sauvage, a sturdy canvas in natural fibers with a contemporary look of great elegance, available in 10 color variants. Then there is Eden, where the main factor is Gobelin, a thick crafted fabric that links back to a technique that began in 1450 in France, reproduced on a loom in 1662 in Paris, used for the production of tapestries. The various wefts and warps of different colors, combined with the possibility of using the Jacquard loom, produce complex, detailed and sophisticated designs, with possible relief effects. The yarns – thinner in the warp and sturdier in the weft – make it possible to obtain unique details, hues and shadings.
This approach can even enhance the already very distinctive design of the new Livre chair created by Federica Biasi: the Eden fabric adds an even more exotic touch to a model that directly suggests Japanese inspirations, in its deep padding and in the base made of black-stained solid wood.
To create, to transform, to interpret: these are the specialties of Gallotti&Radice, relying on production entirely Made in Italy that mixes tradition and innovation.
