Soft and welcoming, the John-John sofa is a showcase of craft in lounges, lobbies, waiting rooms, and libraries. Stitching and folds in the Pelle Frau® Color System leather upholstery create a casual, comfortable look. The stitching at the mid-point of the back cushion seems to divide it into two. Armrests fold over to resemble individual pillows.

“I’m trying to find an honest, generous path with the idea that, somewhere between the hard economic data, there are users. People.” - Jean-Marie Massaud
Since the beginning of his career (a 1990 graduate of Paris’ ENSCI-Les Ateliers, Paris Design Institute), Jean-Marie Massaud has been working on an extensive range of works, stretching from architecture to objects, from one-off project to serial ones, from macro environment down to micro contexts. Major brands such as Axor, Cassina, Christofle, Poliform, Toyota have solicited his ability to mix comfort and elegance, zeitgeist and heritage, generosity and distinction.
Beyond these elegant designs, his quest for lightness – in matters of essence – synthesize three broader stakes: individual and collective fulfillment, economic and industrial efficiency, and environmental concerns. “I’m trying to find an honest, generous path with the idea that, somewhere between the hard economic data, there are users. People.”
His creations, whether speculative or pragmatic, explore this imperative paradigm: reconciling pleasure with responsibility, the individual with the collective.
