The German furniture brand e15 has recently introduced a reedited version of this iconic woven daybed originally designed by the acclaimed architect and designer Ferdinand Kramer in 1925. Inspired by the cultural heritage of Ancient Egypt, ‘FK01 Theban’ comes in either solid oak or walnut while its hand-woven body is available in a textile or tanned leather version. The design is part of an eight-piece collection of Kramer’s designs which have been relaunched earlier this year by e15.
More about the design:
‘Designed in 1925, the iconic daybed FK01 THEBAN is an excellent example of simplicity and grandeur in design. The reduced form features Ferdinand Kramer’s® enduring and subtle aesthetic. Inspired by Egypt and hence the name, Theban is a notable daybed with a calm and inviting appeal. The FK01 THEBAN is available in waxed solid oak or European walnut and features a hand woven surface finished with textile band or vegetable tanned leather, which is luxuriously soft and will patinate with exposure to direct light. A supporting and flexible textile built in the sub frame further enhances seating or lying comfort, while also supporting the woven structure.’
