Rare sofa designed by Ron Arad for One/Off, United Kingdom 1985. This unique sofa has a klee klamp enameled steel frame, dark grey. And on top you see a PVC seating cushion filled with unexpanded polystyrene granules. The sofa is in completely original condition very good but used of course. No holes or damages to the PVC, frame has minimal wear from age and usage.

The Transformer is designed to form around the contours of the user by inflating and deflating the cushion with a vacuum while sitting. Signed with manufacturer’s label to pad: [Transformer by One Off World Patents London] and with foil manufacturer’s label to frame.

Ron Arad was born in Tel Aviv in 1951, educated at the Jerusalem Academy of Art and later at the Architectural Association in London, Ron Arad co-founded with Caroline Thorman the design and production studio One Off in 1981 and later, in 1989, Ron Arad Associates architecture and design practice. In 2008 Ron Arad Architects was established alongside Ron Arad Associates.

From 1994 to 1999 he established the Ron Arad Studio, design and production unit in Como, Italy. He was Professor of Design Product at the Royal College of Art in London up until 2009. Ron Arad was awarded the 2011 London Design Week Medal for design excellence and was became a Royal Academician of the Royal Academy of Arts in 2013.

Ron Arad’s constant experimentation with the possibilities of materials such as steel, aluminum or polyamide and his radical re-conception of the form and structure of furniture has put him at the forefront of contemporary design and architecture.
