Timber seating collection by Charles Kalpakian for Kann Design

Comprising three-seater and four-seater sofas and an armchair, the seating has a solid wooden base and an internal wooden frame.

It also includes elastic belts and HR foam. It is upholstered in a variety of colours, and its pillows are made from dacron fibres, which is a synthetic polyester material.

"The strong presence of the fabric material of the Timber collection gives it the appearance of a comfortable cloud that seems to levitate above the ground," said Kalpakian.

"The floating effect is reinforced by the oak frame which disappears under the structure to appear only at the back and on each side of the armrests."
