Designed by Chris Martin, the Massproductions Dandy collection was launched in 2015. The name Dandy refers to the concept that emerged in the 18th century where a 'dandy' is a term for a middle-class man who, with a certain extravagance in his clothes and appearance, wants to convey a sense of delicate taste and elegance. The Dandy Collection expresses specific values associated with the dandy - elegance, panache, beauty and attitude. In its expansive 4-Seater guise the sofa provides a generous space for up to four people to sit side by side, or perhaps as a chaise longue for two with arms as backrests.
Dandy's design encourages interactions as its curvaceous form has its guests face each other, and when placed in an open space it creates new movement patterns in the room. The refined and comfortable Dandy sofa brings homely references to any space. Thanks to its soft and organic feel, the sofa can be freely placed in the room, creating interesting areas and flowing pathways around it.
Chris Martin on the design: "With Dandy, we wanted to encourage playfulness in how we furnish rooms, homes and public spaces. Magnus found a sofa from the 30s at an auction that had a nice rounded shape. We see rectangular sofas everywhere, so we were inspired by this almost forgotten form."
