axel 5 seat sofa

Design Gijs Papavoine, 2005
Upholstery, steel or wood legs
Made in Holland by Montis

The sled legs under the delicately cut cubist surrounds of the Axel sofa are almost hidden from view, as a result of which the couch seems to have no connection with the floor. The materials are made of the best quality. The height of the seat is chosen quite high in order to simplify standing up. Axel has more than 28 possible combinations as well as the large and small ottomans. Axel is comfortable with an inviting and cozy appearance.

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.

Axel is offered in a variety of fabrics and leathers with your choice of leg options. Sofa does not include extra throw cushions shown in photos. Please note: Axel sofas specified in leather will have extra visible seams.

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.
