COR's new sofa Siwa is named after an oasis in Egypt's Western Desert

Siwa is the name of an oasis in Egypt's Western Desert. It is also the name of a sofa, promising an oasis of calm in the midst of a hectic world. The island sofa was designed by the Altherr Désile Park studio in Spain and realised by seating furniture manufacturer COR. It is being showcased for the first time at the Milan Design Week this week.

Boasting gently curved lines, it is a harmonious and generously-dimensioned seating island with an organic form resembling a water droplet. The upright back also curves inwards, creating a sensual and inviting effect that promises a warm embrace. Seams that are never completely linear and further emphasise the amorphous body are another design highlight. This is not an example of traditional seating furniture, but a piece of lounge furniture with distinctively elegant design attributes.

Available as a single, double or multi-seater, the sofa boasts impressive integrative minimalism: low-set, no frills and visually reduced to the essentials. It is a sculptural piece of furniture that breaks up the spatial geometry with its free form and lends it lightness.

'Siwa is another archetypal sofa addition to our portfolio that reflects modern-day living requirements,' explained Leo Lübke, Managing Partner at COR. 'The exciting thing is that no two areas on the seating surface are the same. Seat depth and viewing angle constantly change – depending on where you are sitting,' he added.
