The Austrian manufacturer Wittmann is especially known for its high-quality upholstery furniture. In their Viennese showroom Wittmann presents from March 25, 2011 the result of a very special encounter: The new, highly sober seating furniture collection ‘Vienna’ designed by non other than Jean Nouvel. The cooperation started when Wittmann was commissioned to produce the seating furniture for Vienna’s new Sofitel.
‘Fossa’ is the new highly convertible sofa designed by Aurélien Barbry for the Germany manufacturer COR. Based on a very simple principle the piece is composed of cushion elements which find a stable place in recesses of the seating and can be moved or removed according to the user’s need.
‘Mono’ is the newest piece the Norwegian design duo Anderssen & Voll created for LK Hjelle. With its linear shape, a very decent padding and above all due to its small dimensions the contract sofa requires only minimum space.
The Italian manufacturer edra, kown for its eclectic and eccentric objects, realised this new sofa designed by the renowned design veteran Francesco Binfaré. Manufactured with the use of high-quality materials, the stuffing is in Gellyfoam® covered with a thick layer of goose down, ‘Brenno’ is characterised by its indulgent appearance: the apparently randomly applied leather covering is accompanied by some artful details and seams.
The Copenhagen based design duo FurnID created a new sofa for the Danish manufacturer Fredericia. We met Bo Strange and Morten Kjær Stovegaard at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair and had a talk about the piece. Enjoy!
How elementary can a sofa be? The Norwegian designers Espen Voll and Torbjørn Anderssen – together they are Anderssen & Voll – realised a very basic sofa for the Danish manufacturer muuto. But as so often the real beauty lies in the details – in this case the solid wooden base, artfully set seams and high quality coverings.
