Amy by Carsten Astheimer is a modern classic take on a sofa, armchair and loveseat. Named after Tim's (one of our designers) first daughter who was born at the same time that the first product samples were delivered into the studio. The cocooned design was developed in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire, the UK's captial for quality upholstery.
Amy by Carsten Astheimer is a modern classic take on a 2 seat sofa, armchair and “love chair”. The design curves around the body, encouraging you to immerse yourself within the soft forms of the seat. To create this cocoon shape the backrest is folded and pleated in a regular fashion like a blossoming flower. We have chosen a contemporary hard wearing velvet for the covering which accentuates the organic voluptuous forms.
HAND MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN
FRAME: The Amy frame is CNC (computer numerical control) cut from 18mm birch plywood to ensure all the frames are milled to the same exacting standards. Birch, when used in the construction of plywood benefits from reduced expansion and shrinkage, providing improved dimensional stability; Ideal for engineering and components requiring fine machinability or high strength to weight ratio, in this case your furniture frame. The frame joints get special attention, they are glued, dowelled, and screwed, corners and seat rails are further strengthened by the addition of reinforcing blocks for increased support and strength. Your hand-crafted furniture frame comes with a full ten-year structural guarantee.
SEAT: The seat comfort and support is achieved using pocket springs, each spring is wrapped in it own individual cloth sleeve, holding the spring at exactly the right tension and allowing it to move independently. This is then further enhanced by a generous covering of Reflex foam and Dacron resulting in a seat that is truly balanced providing both comfort and longevity.
