24/01/2020 - During Imm Cologne and Maison&Objet Ligne Roset has presented the first products designed by Sebastian Herkner, the new sofa called Taru as well as the Lewa sidetables.
 
'The idea behind Taru is a comfortable sofa and daybed showing the high craftsmanship of Ligne Roset', says Sebastian Herkner. Producing in France represents a huge know how for detailing and quality I was looking for in this collection. The elegance and simplicity of Taru reflects my approach for good design which becomes a companion for our interiors. The soft seat with its iconic bold legs are surrounded by the back and armrests like embracing the individuals.

Taru is comfortable and welcoming, with its fully upholstered base giving it real character. The seat is also intertwined with its subtly curved backrest in a bi-material treatment. It is available as a large settee, medium settee and 1-arm settee (left or right).

This model’s originality also springs from the vast potential for mixing materials (fabrics and leather) and colours thanks to the superb rear section of the back, which may be customized as desired. This is a settee with two faces which is thus worth showing off as much for its front view as for its upholstered rear view. As for the seat, it is complemented by a dedicated cushion to further accentuate the model’s comfort, and a footstool which echoes the upholstered base style of the settee.

Lewa

Lovers of nature and geology in particular will recognise the source of inspiration for Lewa low and occasional tables: basalt columns formed from the solidification and thermal contraction of magma flows. Indeed the designer was fascinated by the regularity of these hexagonal prisms which can be topped with less regular elements which are sometimes arranged in wreath shapes.

The Lewa low table takes exactly this wreath shape, in which each component has its own unique shape. The surface is thus divided into several separate sections in which a harmonious display of various objects can be arranged. One of these sections is made from ceramic, with edges sufficiently high to hold water so that cut flowers can be delicately arranged as they might be in a mini Japanese zen bowl.
 
Sebastian Herkner has had an emotional bond with Ligne Roset since his childhood. In his eyes, the brand is the incarnation of 'design à la française', craftsmanship and quality of manufacture.
