Grand Piano Sofa / Chaise Lounge by Gubi
Design Gubi Olsen, 1982
With its musical form and sculptural silhouette, the Grand Piano Sofa from 1984 takes both its name and inspiration from a grand piano. The unique design language reflects the designer Gubi Olsen’s true interest in classical music as well as soft, feminine forms. The result is a sofa where form follows function aimed for socialisation. The timeless sofa features two armrests slightly set back, encouraging for eye contact and private conversations.
The Grand Piano Sofa adds an affable presence to enhance the domestic landscape, making it ideal for any type of decor.
Postmodernism was a reaction to the functionality and formalism of Modernism and gave birth to the Postmodern architecture movement. Postmodernism in architecture is marked by non-orthogonal angles, the re-emergence of surface decoration and the expression of meaningful historical and stylistic references.
Gubi Olsen, founder of Gubi, has always pushed the boundaries to explore new directions in design. His starting point has been the rich Danish tradition of craft and furniture production, together with multiple historical references.
The Soft Collection, a range of furniture designed by Gubi Olsen from 1982 and upholstered in his own Holmens Klæde fabric is inspired by diverse references, such as French cinema, Napoleon Bonaparte and a grand piano.
The 3-seater sofa/chaise longue is available right or left turned. The sofa/chaise longue is constructed with a frame of solid wood covered with polyurethane foam and upholstered directly on the frame. The seat cushion is detachable and reversible. It is available in a wide range of fabrics.
Available with lacquered oak or black stained beech legs. Not available in leather.
