Inviting, unusual and intriguing, the Kubus sofa was designed in 1910 by Austrian Josef Hoffmann, an architect and furniture designer renowned for the recurring geometrical lines and mathematical themes in his work.
While the lines of the sofa might be sober, its exterior is sumptuous, comprising precision-stitched panels of fine aniline leather wrapped around a padded hardwood frame, resulting in a supremely comfortable sofa. Combine it with two Wassily or LC1 chairs for a strong, masculine look that's all about right angles.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
1870 (Czech Republic) -1956 (Austria)
Josef Hoffmann was born in Moravia, now part of the Czech Republic but he spent most of his adult life in Austria. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and fell in love with the country, staying there until he died in 1956. It's for this reason that he is often described as an Austrian designer. Hoffmann had an unmistakably minimalist style and was at the forefront of the arts and craft movement in the early 1900s. Today, his designs are globally reproduced and his originals are displayed in world-famous museums, including the MoMA in New York and V&A in London.
