East meets West

The sofa Ming, with a typically Asian design, comes from the union of East and West. The whole structure of Ming is in solid wood of natural mahogany with front details of the seat in bronze. A gold leaf engraving on the back discloses the poem L’Infinito (The Infinite). Eternal, deep words, true today more than ever. The padded seat is removable, covered in fabric with leather details. The cushions are in goose down. Upon request, it is possible to get a custom-made engraving on the backrest.

Gilding is a process of ornamental decoration used on different materials and with different techniques to embellish an object by applying a very thin layer of gold, known as gold leaf. Gilding was a widespread technique in medieval art and architecture, especially in the Byzantine Empire and in the Renaissance, where gold leaf was used in paintings on wooden panels to enhance the visual effect of saints’ halos, or the sun shining: the corrosion-proof nature of gold has allowed these panels to survive to this day with unchanged splendour. Promemoria’s craftsmen use this ancient technique by applying gold, silver and copper leaf.
