Odeon Sofa + Odeon Dining Sofa

Odeon Sofa

Odeon is a calm and laid back piece with a distinctly independent stance. Striking lines provide a visual accent on the backrest and seat, underscoring the characteristic quality of hand craftsmanship and adding to the seating comfort. It is a delicate and contemporary sofa whose true qualities come to the fore whichever angle the piece is viewed from. A matching footrest complements the model.

Odeon is the first piece of upholstered furniture created by Marco Dessí, an Italian designer living in Vienna.

Odeon Dining Sofa

The idea of sitting at a table on an upholstered bench has a long-standing tradition. A bench gives the person sitting on it the feeling that they have ample space to spread out, and is also the perfect solution for larger groups around a table: it is always possibly to move closer to one another in comfort on a bench. The Odeon dining sofa takes its cue from all the fantastic properties exhibited by the Odeon sofa: outstanding comfort, the striking lines which add stability to the upholstery, independence that permits it to shine when positioned as a stand-alone piece.

A more upright backrest and higher seating position makes it the perfect bench which will add new ergonomic quality to long hours spent around the table. A bench could not be more like a sofa than this.

Marco Dessí lives and works in Vienna. He studied Industrial Design at the University for Applied Arts in Vienna. Since the establishment of his own design studio in 2007, he has been responsible for many projects with a number of acclaimed Austrian companies, such as Lobmeyr and Neue Wiener Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten.

Dessí’s approach is practical and cooperative, with design taken to be an interactive process. He is not committed to any particular style, preferred material or unified formula, but rather regards designing as a trade characterized by a deep understanding of materials, processes and how the two are linked. In his work, Dessí values transparency in terms of a consistent link between the process of designing and the actual conditions of production.

The effort to create a perfectly designed object manifests itself in an uncompromising unity of function, construction, and aesthetics; precise relations of form and dimension are just as relevant as are intelligent combinations of materials and a well-considered, detailed concept.
