fox 3-seat sofa

Design Gijs Papavoine, 2011
Beech & plywood frame, foam, aluminum feet, upholstery
Made in Holland by Montis

The Fox is a sofa concept with a strikingly original design that relies on strong and simple lines. The concept is based on a group of modular elements that can be combined with each other in accordance with the individual wishes and needs of the user. The identical shape of the supporting back and arm elements allows for seamless integration of the various elements. Extra-long sofas, various corner configurations and a sofa with fixed ottoman (chaise lounge) are some of the options available, making the Fox sofa adaptable to every interior. The seat section of each sofa is divided in two, giving the appearance of 'cushions'. Besides the visual effect obtained, this also ensures the seats of these tightly designed sofas also remain taut even after long periods of use!

Gijs Papavoine studied at the institute of technology and Eindhoven Academy for Industrial Design in the product Design department. Gijs was employed as a Product Manager at Montis until 1990. In this capacity, he was jointly responsible for Montis' design philosophy. In 1990, Gijs was promoted to dedicated designer of Montis.

Gijs Papavoine

Born in 1949, Gijs graduated from both the Institute of Technology and the Industrial Design Academy in Eindhoven, after also studying at the Higher Technical Schoo. In 1976 he started his career with Montis in the Product Development department and would forever be associated with the company. He quickly ascended to the position of Product Manager and shared responsibility for Montis' design philosophy, leaving a clear mark on the company. He was promoted to head of the Montis design team in 1990 and designed models for InterArt; such as Escargot, Sumo and Kibuki.
Papavoine’s style is characterized by a clear, graceful and refined interplay of lines, with a strong sense of simplicity. His Basso Lounge Chair, part of a complete seating set for Vandersluis, was awarded the Red Dot Award in 2011.
Montis was established in 1974 and quickly focused on modern design with superior seating comfort. The Montis collection stands out with unique color combinations and with their use of various leathers. The company set itself apart from its competitors and achieves high comfort by often applying upholstery to a chair, which was often disregarded in a movement that usually stripped furniture to its essentials. Their techniques came to be regarded as distinctly Dutch.
