Grand Suite

Walter Knoll, 2014

Large, soft pillows and a high, sloping backrest floating on a recessed base.

We have replaced the traditional conclusions with elements that no longer have only one unique function, but are open for a multitude of uses.


Thus the classic armrest has been dematerialized into little more than a curved surface. The armrest is therefore no longer just an armrest, but also serves as a "garage" for a stool or a basket.

The second conclusion extends the base of the sofa, and on it lies a thick leather surface with multiple bends. This is an armrest, and with the attached pillow, it can be a headrest, but it also offers generous storage.


The overall system is designed so that it can accommodate different floor plans and requirements with openings and inserted occasional furniture.
