Sofas & Armchairs

As upholstered seating sofas and armchairs are closely related, do however also enjoy independent lives. And separate histories. As a furniture object the Sofa has been known since ancient times, while the armchair only dates back to the Middle Ages. In the course of the 20th century both developed from objects of extreme luxury to universal everyday items, with the "three piece suite" ultimately becoming one of the standards of domestic furnishings. A state of affairs which has naturally meant that over the course of the past century all important designers have at some point in their careers tackled the subject of upholstered seating. With his Barcelona Chair through Knoll International Mies van der Rohe, for example, created an object specifically for the Spanish royal couple which rejected the ornamental flourishes of baroque in favour of clean lines and functionality. Further important sofa and armchair designs include the LC3 Sofa by Le Corbusier from the Cassina LC Collection which combines minimalism and functionality in a unique way; the Sofa Favn from Fritz Hansen, the Vitra Park Sofa or the Hay Sofa Mags. In addition to a classic focus on upholstery and traditional form languages, designs such as Kartell's Bubble Club Sofa or the Vitra Slow Chair not only represent different styles and shapes, but are also realised from new materials and using new, innovative manufacturing processes.
