The Taite sofa , designed by Ari Kanerva, came about from a boredom with fixed-standard furniture tubes. Laser cutting allows the lines of the frame to change direction and the surfaces to taper or widen at whichever point looks good. Bending the thin steel plate at exactly the right spot ensures structural strength and an individual look for the chair. The contrast between the materials and colours of the frame and upholstery is highlighted by the cut-open steel-plate frame and results in a combination of industrial ruggedness and cosy softness. Tables of different sizes and heights are complementing the collection.
