Charlie Modular Sofa

The close collaboration between Johanson and Färg and Blanche continues to produce results. This spring, for instance, marks a new stage in the development of the Parker concept, this time in the form of a modular sofa with the name Charlie.

“The idea for CHARLIE stems from the Parker Stool that we designed for Johanson some years ago. We were working on sketches for new modular sofa concepts when we realised that Parker stool had already laid the foundations for a whole new series of seating furniture. It was as simple as that!” say Färg and Blanche, when describing what led them to embark on this expansion of the series. After some experimentation with the “waist” ring that is the hallmark of the PARKER design, the new sofa was ready with an appearance to match that of the popular stool.

The ambition with CHARLIE has been to make it possible to create various configurations to suit different requirements. The current solution combines versatility and flexibility to ensure CHARLIE is at home in all sorts of settings while still retaining its own unique character.
