GETAMA sofa | Teak GE88
Stylish and slender but comfortable sofa with afromosia teak frame and sprung cushions.
Covers are original getama covers in lovely soft cream / off-white colour.
The sofa offers excellent seating in a light and airy design which is heavily inspired by the chairs designed by Hans Wegner for Getama.
It is this inspiration which landed GETAMA in hot water with Hans Wegner as he felt the design borrowed too much from his design.
See model GE233
The GE88 was designed by Aage Pedersen the former director of GETAMA.
He was reprimanded in very strong words by Wegner and told that this production was to cease if the co-operation between them was to continue!
Condition. Perfect with lovely patina. Upholstery with very minor signs of use.
