Rochester sofa

Michael Anastassiades | SCP

A design that grew from an inquisitiveness about how behaviour is changing on public furniture, where people are now inclined to be working or engaging with media on personal devices. Rochester creates a comfortable enclosure for the user, a place for a little privacy.

The design language is strict and formal, but comfort has also been made a priority. The sofa frame sits on a wooden plinth, with a small gap recessed between the two elements for visual lightness. For lumber support, a triangular wedge cushion is designed into the back of the seat. A piping detail on the upholstery parts and a gentle chamfer on all the inside edges of the feet show the attention to detail in the design.

An accompanying ottoman follows the same language as the sofa, but is slightly firmer so it can be used as a seat, foot rest or a side table. Made from a solid beech frame with 7mm square solid oak edging on the veneered side and back panels. The frame has zig-zag springs, jute webbing, hessian straps and is covered with a mix of materials that includes natural fibres, animal hair and wool. The plinth base is made from oak.

Made to order in Norfolk, England.

Available in a wide range of other fabrics and leathers.
