The harmonious trinity of people, furniture and materials This spring, KFF - furniture manufacturer from the East Westphalian city of Lemgo - surprises with a new creation at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. The mediumsized company shows its courage to innovate with the new GAIA chair, exclusively designed for KFF by the well-known Italian designer Monica Armani. “This chair is a masterpiece in terms of aesthetics and comfort and reflects feminine elegance in its floral, feminine appearance. The sensual form skilfully covers the extremely sophisticated technique of upholstery,”explains Jens Lewe, managing director of KFF. The design brand KFF has been playing successfully for over 33 years with the harmonious trinity of people, furniture and materials. The focus is on longevity, independent design and sustainability. This strategy has led to a balanced collection of many successful model-families, such as TEXAS, MAVERICK, YOUMA, D-LIGHT, LHASA and the currently enormously successful collection ARVA, with the new line ARVA LIGHT. The ARVA Lounge with Ottoman was awarded the German 16 | Issue 62 | May 2018
Design Award earlier this year and thrilled the industry as a reinterpretation of the mid-century design with additional comfort and finesse. “We design and produce authentic furniture for contract and private living in three seat heights: lounging, dining und high-dining. Our furniture is a companion for life. We want to arouse a sense of happiness and the comfort of our chairs should be transferred to the people who use them,” says Jens Lewe. KFF furniture is very versatile due to its many designs. Noticeable high-quality leather, exceptionally beautiful fabrics and the wealth of variants in the frame and armrest versions leave plenty of room for the individual needs of customers.
KFF’s path to success began more than thirty years ago with the SINUS chair, by company owner Karl-Friedrich Förster, which has been consistently expanded upon over the years with high quality standards and has been taking off again since 2017 with the ARVA product family. “We are all very excited to see where the path with GAIA, our wealth of ideas and the desire for fresh design will take us in the next few years, if you would like you join us!” concludes Lewe.
