Ruche Footsool (Red Dot Award)
Ruché incorporates an ideal blend of minimalism and sophistication, rigidity and comfort. The result is simple yet fine-tuned, a harmonious union of straight lines and soft curves. Its name is derived from a sewing technique, in which fabric is gathered or pleated, creating a ruching effect. A thin yet strong structure in natural varnished-, anthracite-, or red-stained beech wood forms its foundation, upon which rests a seat whose distinct quilting lies at the heart of its aesthetic. Designed expressly to be draped over a beech wood frame, the distinctive quilted duvet cover of this sofa is tactile and inviting. An optional table surface can be incorporated into the sofa. This year, the instant classic from Inga Sempé is available in even more options, namely a medium or large sofa with low back profile.
