MAGNAT | Sofa
The magnat sofas and armchairs were designed 20 years ago by the Danish designer Erik Magnussen. To mark this anniversary, we are producing magnat once again. Magnussen was well-known for his approach of going back to the basics for each design project.
The magnat sofa features a dividing seam at the centre that adds a subtly separating touch to the seat and backrest’s smooth surfaces. On requirement, the sofa can also be luxuriously ﬁnished in one piece. The natural looking, open-pored leather covers are a fundamental element of the ﬁnely balanced design.
Covers in natural shades add a well-balanced look to this group of three armchairs. At the front foot area, the armchair angles slightly towards the back. This gives the legs more room and also adds a dynamic touch to the outline. Top left a single armchair in light grey; top right: the back view clearly shows the design‘s angled outlines.
magnat‘s appeal lies in the extreme simplicity and clarity of the design which, although sparse – not least also in spatial terms – not only looks lively because of the outwards curving armrests and the graceful outline but also offers plenty of freedom to move when sitting down.
