Why is it Special?
Godot is a comfortable and generous sofa series comprising 2- and 3-seater sofas as well as an armchair. The inner "spaces" of the sofa are designed in sizes allowing for a comfortable seating position without limiting the freedom of movement and the freedom to stretch your legs. The soft shapes of the upholstery are deliciously inviting and, also, constitute a marked contrast to the sofa's exterior of more simple and geometrical forms. The interior belongs to the occupant and the exterior belongs to the room.
Iskos - Berlin Design is a partnership between Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos. The firm operates within the fields of industrial, furniture and graphic design. This enterprise was only established in late 2010, but Boris and Aleksej had worked together for a number of years prior to setting up shop together. In 1987, Boris co-founded Komplot Design, where Aleksej was employed as an assistant for more than 11 years. This long and fruitful cooperation engendered a shared design philosophy.
The exterior vertical and rectangular surfaces allow for easy and natural placement of couches along with and close to walls as well as positioned centrally in the room; and, likewise, the feasibility of placing the furniture side by side as well as back to back. This feature makes Godot very usable in private as well as in public spaces.
