With sofa 968, designed in the late 1930s, Josef Frank broke with the traditions of the time by creating a gentle curve in the back and a more substantial inward bend in the front of the sofa. This piece of furniture was nicknamed the “banana sofa” due to its gently curved form.
Sofa 968 is here shown with textile black Anakreon. Price excluding fabric.
The sofa is handcrafted in Sweden.
