60 YEARS OF GREAT BRITISH SOFAS
Since the day that Ebenezer Gomme set up his first furniture factory in 1898, G Plan has always had the same aim: to create sofas and chairs that offer genuine comfort and quality.
Multichair is a convertible system consisting of two individual elements that can easily turn into a chair or armchair for conversation or relaxation. This is a product designed with the total attention and full respect that a veritable design icon deserves. Both cushions have a steel internal structure and are upholstered in polyurethane foam. At the edges, the upholstering stretch fabric is glued to keep its shape unaltered, while leather belts, with the help of pins and buckles, keep the elements together. Stitching is partially done by hand and the entire production is strictly made in Italy. Apart from the technical content and the quality of materials, Multichair is also typified by a dual spirit, a trifle serious and somewhat informal, in perfect pop style. Part of the MoMA and the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art permanent collections.
