After hosting a metaverse-worthy virtual booth at last year’s Maison et Objet 2021, the furniture design brand is back to immersing real-world humans in its immaculately designed real-world furniture and experiences.
The Portugal-based furniture brand prides itself in manufacturing furniture that’s nothing short of a multi-sensorial experience. This experience starts with the eyes, continues with the act of sitting on it, and lingers on long after you’ve made yourself comfortable. The soft forms of Domkapa’s pieces are further enhanced by the carefully selected soft fabrics, that invite your hands to run across them as you sit on the sofas, armchairs, poufs, or even beds. Combined with well-selected color palettes, high-quality materials, and contemporary forms, Domkapa’s furniture boasts of a bold identity, while looking distinctly comfortable and welcoming.
While last year’s virtual tour offered a limited experience in terms of the tactile nature of Domkapa’s furniture, the experience allowed the brand to reach an even larger audience than it originally would have, with the Maison & Objet showcase. This year, however, the Portuguese company is determined to head back to the international fair to not just introduce people to their designs, but also help people understand the process behind their collection. “We’re talking about emotion, sharing knowledge, inspirations, sharing talent”, said a Domkapa spokesperson. From March 24th to March 28th, Domkapa will debut their latest collection at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center in Hall 6, Stand 182… although readers can get a small taste of what’s in store just below!
All of Domkapa’s furniture is created in-house in its Northern Portugal factory, where the design team works side to side with the production with the goal of creating high-quality expressive furniture that highlights and champions its upholstery and the work of the skilled craftspeople working in-house. Domkapa’s pieces reinterpret classics in a modern light, always respecting the design principles of proportion, balance, color, shape, and texture.
Kelsi is an outstanding design and handcraft work, combining unique production techniques and fine materials to create a rare piece. The wingback headboard is the focal point o this bed, rich in details. It features two large padded cushions for extreme comfort, supported by two lavish metallic tubes. Along with the structure, you can find other small details, the result of exclusive craftsmanship.
Inspired by a concept of elegance, comfort, and intimacy, Juliet sofa is a rounded piece supported by four steel legs and tubing. Characterized by soft curves and balanced proportions, the backrest extends to the sides creating subtle and elegant armrests. The highlight of this piece is represented by the carefully upholstered slopes, emphasized by horizontal bands of haute-couture stitching.
Alexander is a highly innovative solution linked to a functional and quite traditional shape. A powerful and embracing structure where a high back smoothly connects to the seat cushion and ends on a swivel base. The arms and backrest on this piece slightly arch outwards, inviting everyone to sit. The highlight goes to the additional support padding in the back, held up by a metallic opulent counterweight, that can be adjusted in height and produced in a different finish.
This timeless chair design is the result of a mature awareness process inspired by different ideas and experiences. Available in four distinct versions, it includes two options for armrest customization (with or without armrest) as well as two customization options for the base (four legs or a sled base). Concerning the base, you can choose a wooden or metallic finish. Meanwhile, the upholstered seat and backrest can also be customized with contrasting fabrics.
The construction of Grant pouf skillfully combines aesthetics and ergonomics to establish this as the go-to solution for every design project. Designed for various functions, Grant is available in three different sizes to accomplish the final look you’ve always dreamed of. It features elegant piping in each corner of the piece, gracefully matching the two contrast piping that carefully hugs the entire pouf.
Distinguished by its three tall vertical tubes, Ralph is a minimalistic hanger with an industrial touch. These three tall tubes are connected by a T-shape metallic pipe on the top and bottom of the piece for incredible stability. The spotlight of this stunning design is the vintage style tray with leather detail that rotates 360º. This feature allows storage space for keys while complementing the hanger and enhancing the style of your project.
