Designed in 1964 by Kho Liang Ie, who was Artifort’s aesthetic consultant at the time. Relaunched in 2009. And yet the design has lost none of its power. With its comfortable, slightly raised and not too deep seat, the C070 provides a graceful contrast to all the excessive, soft, low lounge sofas of today. Simply slim, clean lines, an elegant base, and the single row of buttons as the finishing touch. There is such a thing as timeless design.
