Orbit Sofa by Artifort

Artifort is a Dutch furniture maker with over 100 years manufacturing experience. The Artifort name is derived from the Latin word ‘ars’ meaning art, and ‘fortis’ meaning strong or powerful.

These pieces attracted my attention because of the bright colours and simple rounded forms. They're like a cartoon version of an airport couch. Fun and utility.

"With the Orbit, Wolfgang C.R. Mezger designed a classic piece of Artifort furniture. Round, supple curves and upholstery that follows them effortlessly typify this striking sofa. And it’s certainly comfortable thanks to the horizontally sprung seat and the undulating back ... Its circular, coated aluminium base completes the picture."
