Description

Designed in 1976 by Fred Lowen with obvious cues from the Scandinavian modern tradition. This stylish, modular sofa has a lightness of form that is rarely matched. The design takes its reference point from the Norwegian furniture makers who excelled in moulded plywood furniture in the 1970s.

The sofa is constructed from a moulded hardwood frame, supporting a hammock style canvas sling. Two cushions and stunning, upholstered armrests on each end crafted from rich Australian leather round out a sophisticated and comfortable modern masterpiece. Tessa was a high end furniture maker and this stunning sofa is made to the highest standard.
