Living Platform


Walter Knoll, 1999

A patented mechanism allows instant transformation of the Living Platform from a sofa into a daybed or vice versa. The armrests can be raised or lowered in one simple movement and will lock in place where desired. In addition, the seat can be pulled forward and extended. As all the main elements of Living Platform can be adjusted individually, it is not the

sofa that determines how the users sit, but the users themselves – and the sofa adjusts to their individual ergonomic needs.
"It’s a common misconception that we always sit on sofas with our bodies at right angles," Martin explains, "which is why it’s so important to us that the sofa
allows you to sit and lie in
different positions."
