Living and contract. Sancal 2020 collection
Since 1973, Sancal has been a company in all senses of the word: in its imagination, creation, development, innovation, manufacturing and quality service.
When we think of Sancal, the word project springs to mind, because this enterprise is much more than just a simple firm. The development of fabulous creative potential – to transform the everyday; to transgress the boundaries of habitat through design - is also an essential aim for Sancal. The Sancal project maintains a continuous flow of ideas and that is why it is an unfinished project, which retains the illusion and the nonconformist ethos of the first day; which, as a familiar company, desires the extension of its identity over time.
News 2020: Diwan armchair; Roll chair; Click sofa.
Diwan is part of the new collection designed by PerezOchando. The range includes a chaise longue, as well as modular benches and an original armchair. Claudia and Pedro have reduced sinuous curves of the seats and backs to their bare minimum, bringing an air of lightness to the design. The legs’ formal simplicity provides a touch of distinction. Available in natural or stained wood, they can be combined or contrasted with the upholstery.
Designed for sitting, rather than lounging, they have a higher seat height than the divan. The chaise loungues and armchairs provide greater support for more relaxed seating. The lumber cushions enhance the comfort of the seats and add another texture of colour to the composition.
Perhaps Roll chair's complex simplicity may mislead you at first, as well as its inspirational concept. Maybe this is the most ironic and contemporary design created by MUT. Inspired by the leg presses that can be found in gyms, this original seat rejects the main role of these machines: Roll offers rest to those who need a calm pause.
Avoiding superfluous ornaments and details, the Valencian creatives reduce the conventional shape of a chair to two pure elements: steel tubes and two cylindrical pads for back and seat. Their passion for the inner charm of simple things and the rounded figures are part of MUT’s hallmarks and they are also present in their new design for Sancal.
Its unusual silhouette turns an industrial object into a work of art, extenuated still further if stacked to form a sculptural figure. In this way, Roll combines balance, beauty and functionality.
Click is a modular sofa available in various configurations. Toni J. Castaño of Estudio Sancal had a light bulb moment when he was adjusting the headrests of his car. Starting from a simple mechanism, similar to the one used in the automotive sector, the studio shaped a very versatile sectional seating system.
In addition to sofas and customised compositions - to which playful armrests and functional tables can be added – the Click can be configured into armchairs and small modules for charming bars and cafes.
No one could imagine that this is Sancal's first “flat-pack” sofa. This remarkable feature reduces the environmental impact from transport due to the packaging reduced sizes. Its easy assembling system, as its name suggests is as simple as clicking the elements together.
