Anne Boysen's Toward sofa gets a green update
Danish designer Anne Boysen released her successful Toward sofa last spring. Created for also Danish furniture company Erik Jorgensen, the piece infuses the benefits of a sofa, an armchair and a chaise-longue. Upon realising that people move a lot even when they are seated and relaxing, Boysen intended to create a piece that not only ensures but supports this freedom of movement with maximum comfort.
The final multi-functionality is achieved by the simple solution of incorporating movable armrest. The wide, cushion-like structures can be freely moved or even completely removed. As such, Toward offers a range of sitting positions, including the options of two people sitting face-to-face with each other. Originally coming with brass-clad oak legs and fashionably modern upholstery, now Boysen redesigned the sofa with a natural approach in mind, and created an earthy, organic colour scheme. The legs are now clad with aluminium to fit more the modest outlook, while Kvadrat produced six different hues of green textile that demonstrate a great differences in texture as well. This small makeover gives a completely different character to Towards, that still benefits of its versatility.
