About the ProductIts name is a suggestive invitation. You must surrender to its embrace if you want to live it intensely. This is what Livit, the new outdoor sectional sofa by Lievore Altherr Molina Studio, proposes: “A welcoming piece with soft cushions buoyed up by a slender aluminum frame, which balances comfort and lightness with the aim of providing a blithesome relax”. It seems to levitate, as its name also insinuates, though its shapely and voluptuous silhouette might be delusive at first sight. Something is quite clear, though: it does not give up in the least to that “timeless Mediterranean elegance”, as its own designers define it. A couch especially designed so everyone enjoys “at ease”, thanks to the breadth and carefully studied slant of its arms. You will inevitably fall for it if you miss those scorching summer afternoons, back in your childhood, when you took a siesta in a hammock protected from the sun by an arbor or when you devoured an adventure novel in an old rocking-chair trying to find the right position to prevent your legs from stiffing. Livit brings back those pleasant sensations, suppressing discomfort and adding sophistication and design. If you live it, then you will surely love it.
The BrandMore about this Brand
La Exportadora del Mimbre was founded by lawyer Miguel Laso Tortosa in 1960 to export wicker products. Tortosa had identified a gap in the European market for products made from natural materials. He brought in the wicker from the nearby region of Cuenca and it was handcrafted into baskets, folding screens, cradles and toys. A few years later, armchairs and loungechairs were added to the company’s range.
