Stella convertible sofa designed by Wilhelm Knoll in the 1950s. The Knoll brothers, Willy and Walter, were both major innovators in furniture manufacturing in the first half of the twentieth century. In 1927, Wilhelm Knoll released his Antimott (anti-moth) range, which used the combination of a new upholstering technique, lightweight wooden frames, and elastic straps to create lighter, more comfortable sofas and armchairs. An aluminum-framed version of the Antimott line was even used to furnish Zeppelins. This Knoll Antimott Stella sofa is particularly interesting due to its unique folding system which allows it to be converted into a bed. It has the original upholstery with a brown chequered pattern, which is in very good condition.
