– I wanted to create a modern, feminine sofa.
Johanna’s vision was to create a comfortable, more feminine modern sofa – a timeless interpretation of a modern Howard that suits any environment. The result is the sofa COSY.
– It was incredibly fun to develop it together with Fogia, and to be involved on the ground in Fogia’s own factory outside Gdansk, Poland. And, of course, the close cooperation with Håkan Urdell.
