The Wonder Sofa is a contemporary reinterpretation of 1970s lounge furniture by Space Copenhagen for GUBI. Its designers have updated the informal, generous and playful nature of the original modular sofa with an elegant and simple frame.
The Wonder Sofa brings the relaxed and approachable feel of home to a hotel or lobby, or a touch of sophistication to a private residence. Endless combinations of the Wonder Sofa’s 3 modules enable it to adapt to users’ changing needs. As a freestanding piece, in groups, back-to-back, side-to-back or in rows, the Wonder Sofa’s distinctive design enchants from every angle.
The Wonder Sofa’s plump cushions are softly folded over the clean, square lines of the backrest and attached with the ingenious feature of hidden magnets. This softens the relationship between front and back and creates a sense of relaxed sophistication and comfort in which playful exuberance meets measured simplicity.
Established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, Space Copenhagen is a design studio working across multiple disciplines from furniture, lighting and refined objects, to art installations, art direction and interior design for private homes, hotels and restaurants all over the world.
The ambition is to forge new paths by balancing opposites — classic and modern, industrial and organic, sculptural and minimal, light and shade. Duality and contrast. Curiosity as a fundamental human condition.
The studio’s intuitive approach embodies designs that are distinctively shaped by the given circumstances, functional needs, and a fundamental interest in human behavior. It is a sense of and belief in slow aesthetic that centers quality and longevity.
Space Copenhagen has created lauded furniture pieces for some of the world’s leading manufacturers and continuously substantiates their roster of high-end interiors at an international level, following, among others, their award-winning design for 11 Howard hotel in New York and acclaimed destination restaurants Geranium and Noma in Copenhagen.
