Happen is a timeless piece that rises above transient fads. Rafa García was not aiming to reinvent the sofa, but to refine it, obsessing over the smallest details of its proportions, materials and seams.
This seemingly straight-forward design uses an ingenious L shaped base to integrate the different elements. The result is our widest selection of modules, a programme more akin to cabinets than upholstery.
The design boasts no fewer than five arms; wide,
narrow, low and with an arm-cushion. An innovative
table-module can be joined to a seating area. Even
the angles push the boundaries of what is possible
along with an asymmetric terminal module. The poufs
can be used as loose items or with the modules – or
they can even be used as corner elements. Two back
heights are available: 84 and 74cm (identified as high
back and low back in the price list.) Compositions
using differing height cushions can be made by using
Despite permitting such a high degree of customization, the essence of its design remains. The Happen
is instantly recognizable by its effortless formality,
purity and simplicity.
The wide seat cushions are exceptionally comfortable
with a generous 6cm topping of memory foam.
