YALE

Designed by Jean Marie Massaud

Synthesis, reduction, lightweight. But above all comfort: these are the principles that Jean Marie Massaud has always been following for his creations. These principles were transferred into Yale collection of sofas and armchairs that in 2011 was awarded the prestigious Golden Compass for its innovative vision of upholstered sofas and armchairs combined with a minimal support structure.
In fact, it’s the lightweight of the aluminium composing the supporting base that “embraces” the sophisticated cushions filled either with cotton wool or feather. Offering the chance to play with fabrics, finishes and colours, Yale with its strong identity adapts to every type of interiors, both residential and contract. Such an elegance, purified from any mannerism and focusing on the product’s essence, can be also found in Yale X, Yale Bed and Yale Low Table.
