New-Century Modern - 416 series

The return of an icon: 416 series

With the sublime 416 series, launched by Artifort in 1960, renowned designer Kho Liang Ie made a clear statement that was ahead of his time. In his voyage of discovery undertaken within strict social constraints of the late 1950s, he sought the contrast between soft and rigid structures. This resulted in a modular sofa program that looks remarkable from any angle.

Artifort is proud to once again offer this modern masterpiece with new possibilities.

Modern finishes

The minimalist frame of the 416 series consists of a careful balance between brushed stainless steel and black coated metal elements, finished with slats made from Santos rosewood. The padded seat cushion provides maximum comfort.

By reinterpreting original elements, Artifort gives the sublime 416 series a contemporary touch, without detracting from its unique elegance and style.

The 416 series from the 1960s consisted of an armchair and a 3-seater sofa with padded cushions. This iconic series has been updated to today’s ergonomic standards and expanded to include a 4-seater sofa and modern finish options.
