1st Edition ROLF BENZ ‘Pluraform’ Sofa Set – Germany, 1964 #S1734
Very Rare 1st Edition Pluraform sofa by Rolf Benz from 1964. The sofa still has it’s original fabric and is in near mint condition, no wear or stains (one damage to a corner of a seat, see picture). The tables are made Brazilian Rosewood veneer and entire sofa and tables rests on a heavy chrome plated metal base.
Mid-century German design at it's best and most innovative.
The seat part of the sofa can be extracted to create extra lounge space or a bed-sofa.
The ADDIFORM and PLURAFORM sofa’s were the first two models that Rolf Benz came on the market with when he started his luxurious furniture brand and factory in 1964. This is one of them!
These sofa's could be ordered in a set-up requested by the client, custom made to size, form and liking. Pluraform and Addiform say something like 'change or vary' in shape. There are very few of these sets on the market nowadays so that makes them extremely rare.
The single seats and coffee tables can be slided next to each other to create a different set-up. The coffee table in between then slides to the right end side.
The sofa part and the single-seat part are separate so they could also be placed freestanding.
