Kubus Sofa 3 Seater: From Art Noveau to Geometrical Forms

The kubus sofa 3 seater by Josef Hofmann is one of the most famous furniture objects projected and realized by the Austrian designer and architect: Josef Hofmman worked in the first half of the last century and is remembered mostly for his great influence on the Modernism. The Modernism was an artistic movement that have a great success in design, architecture and city planning.

Josef Hofmann in his architectural and designer works anticipated the strongholds of the following artistic movements, leaving the sinuous and  elaborated forms of the classic design and going to more linear and geometric forms: the kubus sofa 3 seater is an example of this stylistic orientation.

Josef Hoffmann , born in 1870, studied architecture under Carl von Hasenauer and Otto Wagner at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. In 7899, at the age of 29, he became a professor at what is now the University of Applied Arts Vienna. In 1903 he and Kolo Moser established the Wiener Werkstätte. His first important building, the sanatorium in Purkersdorf, near Vienna, built in 1904, set radical new standards in architecture and interior design.

But it was the Palais Stoclet in Brussels, built between 1905 and 1911, that founded his international reputation. Here, Josef Hoffmann succeeded in perfecting the Gesamtkunstwerk (total work of art), reconciling art and life, and aestheticizing all aspects of design.

The Kubus sofa 3 seater represents clearly the attentions that Josef Hoffmann puts in the geometrical forms: the Austrian designer and architect putted the same attention in the realization of the sanatorium in Purkersordf. With this couch Josef Hofmman totally revised the stylistic concept of sofa and seat overall.

Josef Hoffmann’s formal language is primarily characterized by strict geometrical lines, a search for simplicity, and the typical reduction to black and white. He overcame the duality of tradition and modernity and created works that are valid to this day.

The kubus sofa 3 seater because its cubic form has a big visual impact: this is not only a furniture object, but there is also a recall to cubic form in the coating panels (originally made in black leather) sewing one to another and obviously with a square form. In this way the optical effect to recall the cubic form is further emphatic, by using this simple shrewdness.

The result of this unique style by Josep Hofmann is a supremely comfortable sofa perfect for full-length relaxation -the timeless design merges modern ideas was classic style.

Hoffman's Kubus design is timeless because of the balance in this irresistible design. The solid wood frame makes the stool sturdy and the deep padded cushioning provides a comfortable seat that is reliable.

Thanks to this unique style the kubus sofa 3 seater it’s an important moment of passage from the more elaborated and rich styles to much linear and geometrical styles with more attention to functionality of the objects. If you choose the kubus sofa 3 seater for you home, I will buy not only a solid and comfortable sofa, with a lot of space, but also a piece of history design, with a modern style that will give a glimpse of elegance to your living room.
