A rare three-seat sofa designed by Florence Knoll for Knoll International and produced by De Coene in the late 1950s. The sofa has been fully reconditioned and newly upholstered in a grey Kvadrat Steelcut Trio fabric. From 1954 onwards, the renowned Belgian manufacturer De Coene produced Knoll furniture under license. A substantial number of influential Belgian and other European architects started to incorporate Knoll furniture in their designs to emphasize the modernity in their work.
