Deep is a modular seating system by Rafa García for Sancal. The rational design style was used to provide comfort within the smallest footprint possible. This design reinforces the contemporary side of Sancal’s furnishing catalog that offers a marriage of simplicity and luxury.
The box-like exterior with strict angles and straight lines gives way to a bulbous interior. The beveled seat structure seems to disappear while still providing strength and support. With a nod to classical rationalism, the cushion boxing has a separation that enables the padded structure to be seen. Deep is one of Sancal's most adaptable products with a large array of modular elements that can be inserted into a variety of interiors.
The cushions are one way to personalize the modular sofa. Ample scatter cushions can be added to vary the seat depths. Arm cushions can be combined with lumbar supports and stole-like headrest cushions (with fabrics by Paul Smith) to create an infinite array of unique Deeps.
The character of a sofa is defined strongly by the materials and finishes selected. Deep can be upholstered in any of the fabrics from the marque’s full range and on top of this, Sancal is launching two new materials along with the Deep sofa:
- Soft nubuck - ideal for the seat cushions
- Less rigid, textured fabric for the back cushions
When viewed straight on, the feet are subtle and fine, but from the side, they reveal themselves. Made of aluminum, they can be specified in a wide range of colors: gold or carbon (anodized matte) and all the colors in Sancal's lacquer chart.
