The Arabella Sofa offers an asymmetric play on lines that at first sight looks familiar, but on closer inspection surprises. Color combinations can strengthen or soften that effect at will. An infinite object with eccentric twists.
Designed by Stefan Heiliger, 2011
In 1996, Leolux presented its first electrically adjustable piece of furniture, designed by Stefan Heiliger. Danaïde was a reclining island from which a part beneath the seat could be folded out in order to turn it into a normal sofa. Leolux later worked this idea into a number of other pieces of furniture. From his widely differing shapes arise small puzzles, round shapes that grip together, constructed simply from a few lines. We can see this method again in the rocking chair Canguro from 2004. Stefan Heiliger holds a professorship at the College for Design in Offenbach.
Arabella and Parabolica
Stefan Heilgers works is strongly influenced by the sculptural workmanship of the creations from his father Bernhard Heiliger, one of the most important German sculptors of the postwar era. His latest designs Arabella and Parabolica are a good example, modern and visually interesting.

Senso Leather: The special character of Senso leather is due to its thickness. The unusual structure on the surface of this heavy leather is caused by a shrinking effect during the drying process. 1.4 - 1.7mm thick, it has an incredibly smooth grain.
Trendy, modern, bright, this sofa adds a superior design appeal.
