The “Kubus” sofa was made for an exhibition in Buenos Aires, organized in 1910 to celebrate the centennial of Argentina’s independence. The name is reminiscent of cubism, which was born and affirmed during those years. Designed in 1910 by Josef Hoffmann and produced by Wittmann. Three-seat sofa, black upholstery made of individually stitched and piped leather pieces on black stained beech legs. Made for pure comfort and style. Wittmann began collaborating with furniture designers in the early 1960s, and obtained sole authorisation rights to produce the work of Austrian architect and designer Josef Hoffmann. Co-founder of Wiener Werkstätte in 1903, Hoffmann’s designs had simple geometries, refined proportions and merged craftsmanship and artistic conception. He is renowned for his approach to interiors, creating a Gesamtkunstwerk (total work of art) that reconciled all aspects of architecture, art and design.
