Fabricius and Kastholm Four Seater Sofa in Cognac Leather with Steel Frame


Jørgen Kastholm & Preben Fabricius for Kill International, four-seater sofa, patinated leather, steel, Denmark, 1960s.

This sofa embodies a solid construction that is established by clear, sharp lines and vivid geometrical shapes. The way the steel frame is executed, gives the overall unit an open and light character. The leather shows patina and signs of age and use, both of which add to the sofa's unique value. This sofa breathes Scandinavian design all-over, due to its minimalistic character, combined with comfort and architectural aesthetics.

Preben Juhl Fabricius (1931-1984) and Jørgen Kastholm (1931-2007) became friends in the 1950s at the School of Interior Design. In the 1960s they started a collaboration. Although they have worked also individually, it is as a pair that they have achieved their greatest success. During the eight years of partnership they managed to create a wide selection of very high quality designs. The results were often minimalistic and functional designs in steel, glass and leather. Most of the furniture of the Danish designer duo was produced by the German manufacturer Kill International.

Please note that the leather shows signs of wear and use, such as tears and scratches. Reupholstery can be done before shipping by our experienced craftsmen and -women in our own in-house restoration atelier. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece retains its value and is ready for the many years to come. We kindly ask you to contact our design experts for further information about the endless possibilities our restoration and upholstery atelier has to offer. Of course, a locally organized reupholstery is possible as well.
