Kyoko Inoda and Nils Sveje designed the three-seater to be not just ergonomic and comfortable but also to be striking when viewed on its own in a room.
Developed in collaboration with Karimoku's manufacturers and their 70 years of woodworking experience, the Kunst sofa demands "extremely high techniques and skill to create," the company said.
The result is a seating design, in which the wood and upholstery blend together seamlessly.
"The aim was to create a timeless masterpiece, realising the highest sense of aesthetics, breathing life into the smallest details — creating that, which could be loved for many years not because it particularly stood out but because it was simply beautiful," Karimoku said.
