With its striking frame and modernistic design, this sofa is a nod to Miami South Beach culture. Art deco meets industrial design. An expressive sofa with outstanding comfort. Adjustable armrests, back support and head rest indulge you with customised seating and lying comfort. That holiday feeling with design overtones.
A timeless classic that stands out from the crown because of its soberness and airiness. For designer Jean-Pierre Audebert the task was clear, interpreting it was all the more difficult, until he saw the lines of the Tosca model appear on his drawing board one fruitful evening.
The Tosca is a paradoxical creation: It looks so finely constructed and gracious but it is thus even more comfortable and very typically JORI.
A contemporary but timeless design, with a healthy disregard for all trends, its characteristic frame in bright chrome embraces the back and sides to enhance its appearance and attractiveness.
Its simple lines accentuate its superior comfort, which is obvious on the first touch. The Tosca comes with an adjustable armrest and is also available with a headrest. Try it and persuade yourself that appearance really deceives.
A fast career in French design
It was in 1967 that Juan Jorion met Jean Pierre Audebert in Paris at the salon of the famous ‘Société des Artistes Décorateurs’, an organisation which groups the crème de la crème of French designers. Audebert presented a furniture collection for young children and also a range of office chairs. A close collaboration was born which contributed to the success story of JORI.
Jean-Pierre Audebert graduated from the Ecole Boulle, where he was also a professor at the beginning of his career. As an architect, he earned his stripes with interior projects for financial institutions, public buildings and schools. He also carried out several projects for the French High-Speed Train or TGV.
