The version of the FK 6720 Sofa, inspired by Preben Fabricius & Jørgen Kastholm, is faithful to the original, creating the same sumptuous blend of rich leather upholstery and sleek steel to produce a stunning centrepiece for any living room or business. With a seat set at 46cm from the ground, allowing light to spill forth beneath it, this seemingly large, solid piece of furniture actually helps accentuate space, creating a lighter, airier feel to any room. The softness of the detachable cushions and the quality of the leather upholstery just adds to the luxury, making the FK 6720 a real statement.
The story behind the Fabricius & Kastholm FK 6720 2 Seater Sofa
First released in 1968, the FK 6720 Sofa series was designed to be a fusion of classic 1920s functionalism and the sleek, modern form of the 60s. It is perhaps the most iconic result of the long, fruitful partnership between Preben Fabricius & Jørgen Kastholm, immediately becoming a firm favourite among mid-century aficionados and remaining an enduring favourite.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
FABRICIUS AND KASTHOLM
Fabricius 1931-1984 (Denmark) - Kastholm 1931-2007 (Denmark)
Preben Fabricius & Jørgen Kastholm met in 1961, while studying under Finn Juhl at the Copenhagen School of Interior Design, and would go on to forge one of the most fruitful and productive interior design partnerships of the 20th Century. Fabricius' skills as a cabinet maker, teamed with Kastholm's blacksmith knowledge led them to produce sumptuous designs from their Gentofte studio, expertly combining materials to create sleek, stylish pieces. Inspired by both functionalism and modernism, along with a healthy dash of 1960s panache, they devoted themselves to optimising shape, material and ergonomics. Their FK series is remembered as their most seminal set of designs, so much so that the FK 6726 "Tulip" Chair won them the inaugural "Gute Form" prize in 1969, recognising their innovation and craft.
