Hartmut Lohmeyer for Wilkhahn, sofa, fabric, teak and rattan, Germany, 1956.

The sofa-bench is sensuous and organically shaped. It features a slightly tilted back and is executed with tapered legs. The softly bent armrests and open frame create a very calming, inviting space. The backrest of the settee is one of the main features by means of its woven rattan back. 

Hartmut Loymeyer (1923-) was trained as an architect at the Technische Hochschule. Here he studied under Egon Eiermann. And later became a furniture designer too. He developed furniture for the home in particular for Wilkhahn in the 1950s and 1960s.
