Melvil

[ Marc Sadler ]

The Melvil sofa stands out for its impressive, square and slightly convex-shaped padded elements and is inspired by geometric rigour and functional, Bauhaus beauty.

The seat features deep-buttoned “capitonné” effect upholstery and decorative stitching that defines its contours.

The collection consists in mobile backrests in various shapes, either straight or angled, that can stand alone or be paired with a corner structure in chromed metal.

Marc Sadler

French, born in Austria, Italian by adoption, one of the first students to graduate from the “esthétique industrielle” course at the ENSAD in Paris, Marc Sadler is a pioneer in experimenting with materials and in mixing different technologies, both of which have become distinctive traits of his work as an industrial designer.
In the early 70s he creates the first ski boot made of fully-recyclable thermoplastic material that is then industrialised by the Italian Caber company. Nowadays, he is acknowledged as an eclectic designer capable of combining style, functionality and competitiveness to the benefit of companies working in very diverse industrial fields.
A 4-time Compasso d’Oro award winner, he has received 4 Mentions of Honour from the ADI Industrial Design Association as well as many important international acknowledgements over the years.
