Carl Hansen & Søn and EOOS present the Embrace Sofa – a flexible and modular sofa with an elegant wooden structure, which combines formal rigor, relaxed comfort, sensuality of materials and craftsmanship.

‍ The idea was to combine the DNA of Carl Hansen & Søn and EOOS, to find the perfect balance between the wooden frame and the softness of the upholstery, between the artisanal tradition of the former and the contemporary aesthetic of the latter.

The designers of EOOS state: “Carl Hansen & Søn's fascinating and in-depth knowledge of wood has been crucial to the production of the Embrace Sofa, which fully embodies the philosophies of EOOS and Carl Hansen & Søn. The Embrace Sofa had to be made as minimalist as possible without compromising on comfort. We are proud of the result we have achieved together. "

The Embrace Sofa has a total of ten modules. Each module can be combined with the others in every conceivable way, but also be used independently, which makes the sofa exceptionally flexible.

The wooden frame and backrest have a rigorous expression, while the upholstery piping produces soft lines that accentuate the upholstery seam. The layer of soft down that envelops the cushions contrasts with their strict shape. The loose cushions of the sofa provide pleasant and enveloping comfort.

The frame of the Embrace Sofa is made of solid wood, as are the modules with armrests and table.

Austrian design collaborative, EOOS, were established in Vienna in 1995 by Martin Bergmann, Gernot Bohmann, and Harald Gründl. 

The trio study historical roots in a contemporary context and use a unique process called Poetical Analysis to create works. 

Their method focuses on myths, rituals and intuitive expressions, to create connections that extend beyond initial perceptions.

EOOS view design as a poetic discipline, and believe that end results should be able to accommodate changing needs and desires.
