Sofa by Wharton Esherick, 1968
32h x 94w x 36d in
One of Esherick’s most accomplished designs in terms of both form and function. The curved form allowed for an easier view of others and facilitated conversation, a very important functional aspect of his work. As the temperature and humidity changed, the red-painted splines were revealed between the boards. This is one of 3 free-standing sofas that he made, each unique in terms of design - several others were built-ins. Signed and dated 1968.
