HM48 Tarn by SmithMatthias for Hitch Myllius
HM48 Tarn is a sofa of contrasts; a grounded, brutalist base with a light, elegant upholstery. A traditional method of upholstery with a contemporary visual language. HitchMylius have been making furniture in North London for over 50 years. All their furniture is handmade by a highly skilled team and many of their key suppliers are local, within 12 miles. They use water-based glues and FSC certified timbers. HitchMylius’ pieces are excellent quality and designed to last.
A reductive approach was taken when designing Tarn to minimise and use common components for both base options. Although the quality of Tarn means it will last, when it does become tired, it’s designed to be easily dismantled for refurbishment or recycling. By bringing the base up into the arms we call attention to the beauty of the timber or finish of the metalwork. Tarn is a response to the blurring of contract and domestic; a comfortable, light sofa collection.
