Portuguese designer Rui Alves was inspired to create The Tailor Sofa by the memory of his grandfather’s favourite tailor shop. An image of the tailors bent over work tables and of old wooden hangers holding grey suits has stayed with Rui. Like that tailor shop, he has de- signed the Tailor Sofa to be authentic, with everything on display: “I wanted to show all of it, the structure, the beautiful oak wood. Nothing should be hidden, as is normally done in sofa design. The sofa is meant to be seen from all sides.” It is especially beautiful from behind. The sofa has a light and airy appearance, the structured upholstered part supported by the wooden frame for a comfortable and practical sofa for everyday use.
Structure: steam bent oak with a soaped surface treatment.
Upholstery: Hallingdal 103 light grey (Kvadrat fabric) or Dunes leather dark brown (Sørensen)
Dimensions: W180 x D69 x H66cm. 3-seater sofa.
Dark brown version – Dunes leather
Light grey fabric version – Hallingdal 103
