David Wendt on the SANDER Sofa
(Head of Design)
"The inspiration for the SANDER Sofa came from the idea of creating a piece of furniture that offers the ultimate in comfort and relaxation without being limited to formal design principles. I wanted to reinterpret the category of cozy sofas, using the potential of design to create a distinctive visual language. Inspired by the art movements of the 70s and 80s and influenced by postmodern design approaches, I wanted to design a sofa that was unconventional and expressive - without becoming gimmicky. The unexpected design is an interplay of the sophisticated upholstered crowning and the hand-sewn covers. This creates a symbolic language of form that evokes associative images such as clouds or marshmallows. But SANDER is also strongly located in the present, the influence of our home Berlin and even more precisely of Kreuzberg, is reflected in the desire for unconventional shapes and colors as well as the historical charms of postmodernism. With the design language of the SANDER, I want to enable people to find their own interpretation, making the design a very personal experience that meets the needs of modern living."

INTERVIEW WITH HANNAH
You helped develop the upholstery for the SANDER Sofa, what was the challenge?
“The development of the SANDER Sofa was completely different from what we usually do. We have gone beyond well-known upholstery techniques, we have experimented and tried a lot. We had to accept that during development. The curve that defines the shape of the sofa was a real challenge.”
What defines the quality of the SANDER upholstery?
“The choice of foam is particularly important. There are huge differences. Then every work step must be so well thought out that there is little leeway in the end to deliver consistently high quality. New foam forms, new seam techniques, custom-made cushion covers, the indentations - we had to throw old ways of thinking overboard. Up to the result as it stands now. When you sit down, you feel like you're sitting on a cloud."
How do I recognize a good sofa?
“What I find very important is to build a sofa that has a quality that lasts. That it does not need to be replaced after 5 years. If you pay attention to quality when choosing a sofa and rely on good materials and workmanship - you are choosing the right sofa. I'm a tactile person, it's not just about how it looks, but how it feels."
