Colour Through The Decades
1973, Togo sofa by Michel Ducaroy for Ligne Roset
Designed in 1973 by Michel Ducaroy for Ligne Roset, the low-slung Togo sofa epitomises the laid back, carefree culture of the 1970s. Its bold caterpillar-like form creates a playful personality, while its plush quilted covers and multiple density foam core provide snuggly comfort. Ever evolving, the Togo now comes in an array of armchairs, loveseats and sofas in a multitude of fabrics and materials.
When it comes to the manufacturing process, it is rather intricate. Togo’s upholstery demands a unique, traditional skill for which the human hand remains irreplaceable, executing the precise movements, which produce the famous folds giving each piece of Togo its character and personality. Machines are used in the beginning of the process, to measure and cut materials, then, as the process continues human and machine combine skills to sew the fabric and padding. At the final process, handmade finishes make the Togo what it is.
