SPACE Copenhagen, a design duo composed of Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, will launch the Fly Lounge series for & Tradition at the Salone del Mobile in Milan this week.
The Fly sofa combines elements of both a table and a sofa, though its chief identity is a sofa. Its side tables ensure maximum functionality, and gives Fly its structured, sculptural quality. The seat itself is optimised for comfort, with several cushions. The side tables also extend from the sofa like wings, lending humorous literacy to the name Fly.
An armchair version is also available, without the side tables.
The frame is made from oak, treated with white pigmented oil or smoked oil. It is the type of material and treatment that ages with true grace, only becoming more beautiful with time. The cotton upholstery is available in four different earthy colours: sand, earth, plum, and sky.

comment: “We wanted to make a piece of furniture that combined traditional Scandinavian design features with a strong sense of comfort. At the same time our ambition was to achieve a balance between sculptural and functional elements.”
