We just love this modern interior recently created by Atlanta designer, Tim Hobby. The saturated, textural blue and magenta absolutely pop against the dark walls and are visually underscored by the designer’s spot-on punctuation with reflective surfaces – this space absolutely captures the sophisticated glam associated with many early 1970s interiors. The room is flanked by iconic seating – Harvey Probber’s Deep Tuft sectional (1972) and Warren Platner’s dining chairs for Knoll (1966). Deep Tuft has recently been reissued and is now available through Switch Modern.
Harvey Probber’s luxurious Deep Tuft sectional seating was originally designed in 1972. Through his namesake firm, Probber pioneered the concept of modular seating in the 1940s. Unlike other modernist designers that were interested in minimalist expressions of materials and form, Probber was known for his sophisticated combinations of exotic woods, polished finishes, and the lavish and sumptuous treatment of upholstery. Characterized by its eponymous “deep tufts,” this modular seating system features the proprietary urethane foam used in Probber’s original pieces. In fact, it was specifically marketed as “Proberon” – a foam that does not sag or disintegrate.
Deep Tuft is available in several modular units that allow the user to create a seemingly endless range of seating configurations. Upholstery is available in a wide range of textiles (including COM) and leathers; bases are available in several finishes including matte or polished chrome, satin black or satin silver aluminum, as well as dark aged or light brushed brass.
