Ottiu – Beyond Upholstery is a brand of upholstered furniture born in Porto, Portugal in 2014. It was created to answer the question: are seating products only for meant for seating? Ottiu pieces are more than their function; they are designed to become the center of attention while creating a harmonious union with the decorative elements that surround them.
As with all Emotional Brands creations, Ottiu lives to achieve excellence in its production and total client satisfaction. We only develop a high-end brand when we are able to assure the best possible production for our designs, which is why we partnered with a company with decades of experience and proven know-how in the manufacturing of upholstered furniture. Each piece, made by specialized craftsmen, is treated like a unique work of art: from the foundation in a solid wood structure to the last details of the high-quality finishing. Conceptually, our products materialize an accessible and comfortable escape from the cosmopolitan chaos, recreating at home a gratifying retreat.
CONCEPT: OTIUM… YOUR LEISURE TIME
The metropolis spirals around its axis, in a cyclical way, and its dwellers lose all perception of time and the world that surrounds them. The time to enjoy the pleasures of life is so slim that leisure has become more precious than precious metals or stones. It is a conscious effort employed by the common philosopher to stop the perpetual tick-tock of a clock in an attempt to break away.
Sophia Loren is an Italian film actress of Hollyeood’s golden era. Encouraged to enroll in acting lessons after entering a beauty pageant, Loren began her film career in 1950 at age 15. With Loren contemporary sofa, we revisit this Hollywood’s legend and created this mid century modern upholstery piece composed with subtle lines as well as a strong character. Its nickeled nails contrast with a high quality Byzantium velvet, and its tubular feet are finished with luxurious silver leaf, creating a very pleasant environment in any luxury living space.
