the purity
of curves

by erla sólveig óskarsdóttir
Foss is named after the word for waterfall in Iceland, the home of designer Erla Sólveig Óskarsdóttir – and its comfy middle section flows down and out, melding backrest and seat. Be it in the oval sofa or the round armchair version. Typically ames, Foss spoils you for choice. There are wood or metal base frames and thanks to the skill of the Italian craftsmen who make the upholstery, the option to use different colored high-grade fabrics for the outer sections. Foss’ combination of comfort and clean Nordic lines makes it ideal for home or office use, or even hospitality zones. The second ames upholstered line, it superbly sets the tone for the new ames “Lounge” world.

i wanted to
capture the soft-
ness of moss
and the shape of
a waterfall.
