With voluptuous curves that mirror the shape of the human body, the Montholon sofa taps into Tristan Lohner’s exuberance with a striking design that makes the perfect centrepiece for any living space. Lohner’s work aims to explore the relationship between an object and its user, creating a sensuous and soothing design that is perfect for curling up with a hot coffee and a blanket.
The base adds a lightness to the design, contrasting beautifully with the generously proportioned seat and backrest. The minimalist silhouette and playful aesthetic is derived from Lohner’s fond memories of his childhood in Paris’ Square Montholon, which lends its name to the sofa collection.
Tristan Lohner’s career in interior design began under Bernard Daude, the cabinetmaker for Pierre Paulin for Mobilier National, France’s national repository of furniture.
After acquiring his Arts and Crafts diploma in cabinetmaking, Lohner studied product design in Paris under renowned designer Jean-Marie Massaud. An accomplished musician, he studied harmony and jazz piano at CIM Paris. Lohner imbues his work with paired-back honesty, exploring the intimate relationship between the object and its user. His playful designs are beautiful examples of contemporary design.
