In the shape of Compact Sofa, Charles and Ray Eames put a design originally intended for their own house in California into series production. Unusually high and divided into two horizontal strips, the backrest lends the sofa an interesting profile and clearly sets it apart from the weightiness of traditional sofas. The sofa can be folded up, making it easy to transport.

The Sofa Compact dates from 1954. With its tall, slim and slightly angular profile, it is very different from traditional sofas. Designed for both the living room and the office, the sofa is collapsible for easy storage and transportation.
