Product description

Designed in 1952 as part of the furnishing for the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University in Frankfurt am Main, the FK11 SENCKENBERG daybed is an extension of Ferdinand Kramer’s elegant and enduring upholstered furniture series from 1926 with the sofa FK09 WESTHAUSEN and armchair FK10 WEISSENHOF. The wedge-shaped, upholstered headrest can be folded up into a rectangular armrest and accounts for the versatile charm of this daybed. Superior wave springs ensure seating or lying comfort.
