Fredrikson Stallard Sofa 'Pyrenees' - Limited Edition of 8
The Pyrenees sofa is Fredrikson Stallard’s first reinterpretation of upholstery. It is a very important piece with adventurous use of materials. Traditionally, polyurethane foam is used as the padding for the skeleton of a sofa, applied onto the hard frame and totally concealed with upholstery fabric. With the Pyrenees, Fredrikson Stallard have taken a solid block of this material and hand carved the form in a sculptural way. A mountain landscape emerges, whose visually rocky surface is contradicted by the softness of the foam. A combination of short black fibres and longer yellow fibres is used to give a lustrous green effect which shines gold as the edges and peaks catch the light.
The Pyrenees was launched at Fredrikson Stallard’s inaugural solo show with David Gill Galleries in London in 2007. Christies have said: " this is considered one of the most successful and iconic works of the designer, so much so that the V&A has purchased an example of this Pyrenees sofa.”
