By Böttcher Henssler Kayser

The design of the Seam sofa is the result of our efforts to integrate elegant form and the purity of a single volume for comfortable sitting, without cushions that are often reminiscent of residential settings. The extremely deep armrest and backrest sink in an expressive curve towards the seat, which represents an ergonomic solution and is at the same time the trademark of the sofa's identity. The geometry of the curvature is accentuated with the stitches on the covers. The sofa's volume is integrated and continues along the height of the armrest and backrest. Despite its rigid geometry reduced to elementary gestures, the sofa nevertheless invokes various organic associations, such as a fan or seashell. It is perhaps precisely this ambivalence that has ensured its acclaim and widespread use in public places.



Moritz Böttcher and Sören Henssler founded their Berlin based design studio in 2007. In 2013 the designer Nikolaus Kayser joined the team. Since 2014 the trio is working under the studio name Böttcher Henssler Kayser in the fields of consumer product, furniture and lighting design with companies such as ANTA, Böwer, Mater, Normann Copenhagen, Scantex, Schönbuch, Vertigo Bird and Zero. The designers were honoured with a number of distinctions like iF and red dot design awards, the prestigious Red Dot „best of the best“ and the Interior Innovation Award 2015 for their sofa Seam produced by Prostoria.
