Cosmo – a chameleon couch by La Selva for Missana

February 7th, 2015 by retail design blog

Valencian brand Missana just launched its last proposal for their most vanguardian colection The Novelties. After the successful launch of their Oslo chair and Valentino bench, today below the name Cosmo the handcrafted upholstery brand presents their new seater sofa designed by David Galvañ y Manuel Bañó from La Selva.
Cosmo rethinks the traditional scheme of sofa, creating a multifunctional, versatile and customizable proposal. A sofa which adapts not only to the characteristics of the space containing it, but to the needs of the user who inhabits it.


Taking advantage of the meticulous craftsmanship of Missana, the proposal takes shape through the details and finishes, combining craft production and the use of numerical control, leading to a balanced dialogue between warmth and
Base
Base + armrest
Base + armrest + individual backrest
Base + armrest + individual backrest + small table
Base + armrest + individual backrest + small table + double backrest
Cosmo is more than the sum of its parts; it is the “whole”, an integration of elements constituting a unique typology.


Missana is a group of warm persons passionate about the world of upholstery. For more than 20 years by our atelier have passed a multitude of ideas, proposals and projects that express our vision and traditional way of working through our products.
