With his Costura Sofa Collection (2015), Jon Gasca wanted to bring back the practice of working with artisans, “and celebrate the noble traditions of the small ateliers we’re surrounded by in San Sebastián,” he says. The stunning result is a collection that combines slim frames and tailored lines with plush back cushions shaped to provide lumbar support and a roomy seat that invites serious lounging. “My grandmother was a tailor for the fashion house Balenciaga,” says the designer. “I wanted to use all the tailoring techniques I learned from her and bring them into the future. The collection’s name means ‘sewing’ or ‘couture’ in English.” Like choices? You can align the legs to be straight or diagonal. Made in Spain; upholstered in Italian fabric.
