MILOS sofa, The “Happy” Island

milos-sofa-the-happy-islandFalzé di Piave (Italy), 8 August 2016 – Milos is a “happy” island on which to lie down, relax and stretch out.

Oval shaped with a removable backrest, it is a convenient cross-over padded element that fits easily into any room, where its informal style blends with the domestic mood. A distinguishing feature of Milos is its visible stitching in a contrasting colour.

The Milos carcase is in wood with seat and backrest padded in polyurethane and eco-feathers, i.e. polyester microfibre flakes. The backrest cushions are filled with Flyn-feather – feathers and polyester fibre – in a featherproof fabric case. It is upholstered in fabric or leather; the déco version combines fabric and leather with removable covers.

A Frenchman born in Austria, Marc Sadler now lives in Milan. He graduated in 1968 from the first course of industrial design at the Paris Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (at that time it was called course in “esthétique industrielle”), a sector at that time already considered separate from that of architecture. His passion is experimenting with plastics and at the beginning of the 70s he created the first thermoplastic ski boot. After working for many years with the Italian company Caber (later Lotto) he specialised in “sport design”, working with all the most important multinationals in the United States, Asia, Japan and Europe. He has received many acknowledgements over the years, including the “Compasso d’Oro” in 1995, 2001 and 2008. In 2014 he was awarded the XXIII Compasso d'Oro for his Bellevue-Panorama project for IFI.
