06/05/2019 - The furnishing brand from the Black Forest is redefining the sofa with Rolf Benz ADDIT. As a pioneer for contemporary interior design concepts, Rolf Benz is presenting an innovative sofa landscape at the Salone del Mobile. It’s a place for using media and meeting up with family, a home office, a play and conversation area and a cabinet of curiosities all at the same time. What’s so special is that with all this flexibility, Rolf Benz ADDIT still exudes a sense of homeliness and superior elegance.Working closely together with Rolf Benz, Tina Bunyaprasit and Werner Aisslinger from Studio Aisslinger have developed a modular sofa range that has enduring visual appeal and the aptitude to become an icon. Rolf Benz ADDIT has a graphically linear appearance that gives the impression of floating. With its voluminous cushions it’s also a place where you can completely relax. “Our aim was to develop an archetypal landscape that looks fresh and playful at the same time,” says Werner Aisslinger. “It should fit in with many environments as a friendly companion for family and friends for years to come. I think we have been successful in doing this, as well as the challenge of promoting the image of a German internationally-coveted brand together with Rolf Benz.”
Studio Aisslinger: “Rolf Benz ADDIT is like a collage of life”
The sofa landscape comprises a complete furnishing concept with which almost every sofa story can be told. Rolf Benz ADDIT consists of individual upholstered elements resting on a fine, leather-covered framework. With a combination of brackets, shelving and trays, the possibilities of turning highly personal requirements into a reality are endless.
“Rolf Benz ADDIT is like a collage of life,” says Tina Bunyaprasit. “During its design we thought about patchwork families, about several generations and also about the varied ways in which we live together these days. We also wanted to be able to connect the objects – within the range and with other objects.“
Symbiotic colours, textures and accessories provide a consistent style with all of the modularity of the products in the Rolf Benz ADDIT range. The look and feel of the metal and wood elements polyphonically harmonises with the Rolf Benz cover materials. Even the optional coffee table and rugs were created by Studio Aisslinger with the ultimate sensibility for the Rolf Benz ADDIT landscape.
“The colours and materials are very important for the concept,” says Werner Aisslinger. “We see Rolf Benz ADDIT as an exciting combination of metal, wood, fabrics, and – with the coffee table – natural stone and glass.”
Add it! The possibilities
The frame is offered in the colours traffic black, telegrey 4 or a fascinating sapphire blue. The metal trays can also be selected in these colours. Solid-wood trays are also available in oak, black oak and American walnut. These wood versions are also available for the shelving. The optional brackets are truly unique. They can be covered with all leathers from the Rolf Benz collection. To match the sofa landscape, Rolf Benz has included a new fabric collection in the entire range – a colourful, high-quality dobby fabric in Trevira CS quality. The colour tones include subtle tones of grey, blue and rosé. Thanks to the new fabric with its high-quality useful properties, Rolf Benz ADDIT also becomes a robust popular location in hotels.
Add it! Coffee table and rug
The Rolf Benz ADDIT coffee table from Werner Aisslinger and Tina Bunyaprasit is also available as an independent piece of furniture. It is optionally available as a round, oval or rectangular table. You can also select the above-mentioned frame colour tones. The table tops are available in optiwhite glass, grey parsol glass, blue parsol glass and graphite brown natural stone. Optionally, a tray can be attached.
With the Rolf Benz ADDIT rug, the designers are integrating the floor into the sofa landscape. The tufted velour rug has a pile height of 12 mm and its rounded corners make it feel really cosy. It can be combined in four graphical designs in two or three colours. It is available in three standard sizes as well as individual sizes.
