The Red Dot award-winning Liner sofa takes its inspiration from 19th-century shipping liners.

Liner sofa and armchair

American black walnut and white oak are the featured hardwoods in the Liner sofa and armchair, a winner in the product design category in the 2010 Red Dot Design Awards, designed by Singapore’s Air Division.

The design, one of 4,252 entries in the awards, takes inspiration from 19th century luxury shipping liners, which provided the rationale behind the sofa’s strong, sleek and fluid structure. With goose down cushions, it bestows a sense of warmth and security.

Air Division constructed the Liner sofa entirely from solid wood for aesthetic reasons, but also because both hardwoods used are harvested from sustainable resources.
