An enduring silhouette, from which nothing can be added or taken away. The appearance and combination of the seams is an art in itself. The shaping of the upholstery, the treatment of the leather, the precision of the steel frame – each provides the design with a special aura through superb craftsmanship. A masterpiece by Norman Foster.
The partnership between Walter Knoll and Norman Foster began in the mid-1990s with the furnishing of the Berlin Reichstag. Our great appreciation for the finest materials and masterful craftsmanship helped give shape to the architect's ideas, which are enduring and globally relevant. The Foster 502 series is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. The harmony of leather and steel, in absolute coherence, is immediately apparent.
Part of the Black Edition of modern originals: the Foster 502 sofa in a glove-soft nappa leather named ‘Classic’ with a matt-black frame. The sofa is part of the Black Edition of icons from different eras – from the 1950s to the beginning of the new millennium. Together, all the models bear witness to an exceptional coherence and stringency.
