Design: Stefan Diez, 2010

The sofa BESS is an idyllic development of the dynamic construction of the HOUDINI chair. The two-seater consists of an upholstered seat and a back made from flexible oak-or walnut-veneered plywood, which is not upholstered. The back is gracefully bent around the back of the seat to form the back rest. The high grade upholstery consists of a body of NO SAG springs and a well-balanced combination of foamed material. For greater comfort and style, the sofa can be complemented with the cushion NIMA. With its two different available seating depths, the sofa is well suited for private and contract interiors. BESS can be beautifully complemented with e15's range of side tables. Its seating height is 400 MM (15 3/4 INCH). The two available seating depths are 660 MM (26 INCH) and 960 MM (37 7/8 INCH). The upholstered seat is not fixed. The sofa is delivered as one piece.
