Product description

“The ‘Prop’ collection began with the sofa, and the concept stems from the studio’s research into the traditional construction of furniture within this typology.”. The design took an honest approach to the construction of the sofa by exposing and celebrating the timber framework, which is conventionally concealed within the upholstery.

Examining an existing manufacturing process in a new light, the studio uses the exposed framework of the sofa and armchair as a mould for the seating area. A sheet of aero-ply is clamped and fastened to the solid timber structure, simplifying the entire construction process and removing the need for complex tooling.


The ‘Prop’ sofa and armchair are upholstered in a softly padded fabric in collaboration with Dutch textile manufacturer, Innofa. This upholstery is fixed to the framework via a series of zips, to be easily interchangeable or removed for washing.

The ‘Prop’ collection has been designed for comfort, with generous proportions and soft upholstery rather than a strict architectural form.. The proportions are based on the studio’s research into human behaviours and how users perceive comfort in both domestic and commercial environments.
