MK10041 Model 52 Sofa | Highlight image
The sofa's upholstered section is loosely placed on a visible, solid wood frame whose top rowholds the seat securely in place. Koch believed in honest design and was opposed to legs that appeared seemingly out of nowhere, seeing this as cheating. He similarly disapproved of using upholstery to hide cheap wood and felt that every design's construction should be of high quality throughout. The Model 52 Sofa's visible frame structure exemplifies the Danish functionalists' idiom of separating the bearing part from the borne part - or the frame from the seat - to fully showthe furniture's construction and highlight the high-quality, natural materials, thus making the construction a design feature in and of itself. The frame is crafted from solid wood and the seat/back is upholstered with leather.
