The original idea of the Even Sofa was inspired by Tatami – the traditional Japanese floor mat, which number of blocks is the typical unit for calculating the floor area. Based on the concept of this traditional standardised arrangement, a modular Even Sofa collection is realised – the square sofa block that can be extended to meet the needs of various spaces. By using wood as the base material in combination with the wool cushions, it creates a fairly stable and calm atmosphere, bringing a sense of visual solidity along with warm touch to the space.
ACTUAL comes from the idea of an all time modern sofa, that you can relate to and live in with ease. It bridges optimized production techniques and the best seating comfort, towards a subtle appearance, to accommodate the thoughts and needs of straight up human beeings. Padded with legendary, quality textile ‘Hallingdal’, designed by Nanna Ditzel in 1965 for Kvadrat, its a true tribute to modernism and functionality.
