The AXEL, with its broad seats, is a Dutch seating landscape.

This sober design, unrivaled in comfort, has grown to be an icon of our time. Its notable frame, almost entirely hidden from view, creates an open appearance. The Axel’s seat cushion leans back in a natural downwards slope, providing optimal comfort as a result. The AXEL is the ultimate sofa that welcomes you with a distinct sense of luxury.
