Product description

The magnat sofas and armchairs were designed 20 years ago by Erik Magnussen. Their appeal lies in the design’s extreme simplicity, clarity and elegance. The sofa features a subtly dividing seam at the centre. On requirement, it can also be luxuriously finished in one piece. Fixed covers in open-pored thick leather make magnat a piece of lasting value that is suitable for both commercial and residential interiors.

To mark this anniversary, we are producing magnat once again. Magnussen was well-known for his approach of going back to the basics for each design project.

The magnat sofa features a dividing seam at the centre that adds a subtly separating touch to the seat and backrest’s smooth surfaces. On requirement, the sofa can also be luxuriously finished in one piece. The natural looking, open-pored leather covers are a fundamental element of the finely balanced design.

Covers in natural shades add a well-balanced look to this group of three armchairs. At the front foot area, the armchair angles slightly towards the back. This gives the legs more room and also adds a dynamic touch to the outline. Top left a single armchair in light grey; top right: the back view clearly shows the design‘s angled outlines.

magnat‘s appeal lies in the extreme simplicity and clarity of the design which, although sparse – not least also in spatial terms – not only looks lively because of the outwards curving armrests and the graceful outline but also offers plenty of freedom to move when sitting down.

magnat is available with leather covers in different colours. The high quality material looks particularly striking in the form of smoothly upholstered surfaces and also makes these strikingly timeless pieces of furniture extremely durable.
