About the design:
Designed in 1962 for the exhibition at the Poznan Furniture Fair, as an answer to the functional challenges of the panel construction at the time, the 1378 set has never been produced since then.
The armchair and coffee table were revived by POLITURA in 2016 because they are more modern than ever before.
The unique shape of the wooden frame in connection with the unusual wood grain makes the armchair R1378 unique. Available with high-quality wool fabrics from kvadrat and fine oak or ash.
The coffee table was awarded the Must Have Award - for its simple elegance and pure functionality. The adjustable tray makes it easy to organize magazines, laptops, cell phones and writing utensils.
