Franz Köttgen for Kill International Three-Seat Sofa in Red Leather
Franz Köttgen for Kill International, three-seat sofa, leather, Denmark, 1960s
Highly comfortable sofa in patinated red leather by Franz Köttgen. The design is simplistic, yet very modern. Leather is stitched and molded on to the frame and legs, a type of architectural design used by mainly Italian designers. The frame is tight and cubic, covered with thick, tufted cushions.
Leather shows an admirable patina with a range of red to brown tones in color. Signs of age and wear visible on the seats.
