Bonsai Sofa

By Claesson Koivisto Rune for Arflex

$7,725.00 Base price excludes the cost of fabric.

The Bonsai seating collection is inspired by reflections upon Japanese aesthetics and culture.  The seats are characterized by soft, curved forms. These inviting, friendly shapes are reminiscent of the bushes and shrubs, found in gardens all over Japan, that have been cultivated and trimmed in order to create beautiful soft, ‘organic’, cloud-like shapes. In stark contrast, rectilinear wooden platforms supported on low, wooden legs elevate these rounded, upholstered forms above the floor plane. Almost like tokonoma, the practice of placing selected, cherished items such as a bonsai tree, upon a horizontal surface in order to create an interior feature, the platforms create a kind of smaller, more dedicated frame within a larger context. Within this ‘frame’ is the presence of other elements such as a recessed stone, for arranging potted plants on or simply a stack of books. Bonsai comes in a variation with metal feet or with a skirt. This sofa is available in a wide range of graded fabrics of your choosing, or you may provide your own material - please inquire directly for more information.
