The moment after the first sketch had been drawn, we started to transform the idea of the linear shape into reality.
Our first tries were however not satisfactory. We did not want the harsh and solid seating comfort that is often gained by indentions. The attempt to divide the upholstery mat by simple stitching was awkward as well. It looked flat and uninviting.
Linear chambers were supposed to remind of cushions, to nestle up to the corpus while being firmly connected to it at the same time. Like it had always been an entity. This is what gives the design its identity and the sofa its unique soft comfort.
So we started experimenting with long cushion tubes. We also call them Inlet-Tubes. These are filled with a balanced mix of latex rods and hollow fibre polyester beads.
