Togo, the cult collection of the 70s, designed by Michel Ducaroy, seduces with its universal character and original aesthetic. A successful story that narrates half a century of an authentic, unconventional seating with strong distinctive features. Its unforgettable folds epitomise the whole culture of details of the historic Ligne Roset brand, which has made craftsmanship its excellence.
It is said that Michel Ducaroy had the idea one morning in the 60s, whilst he was looking at a toothpaste tube. From the image of those folded shapes, the explosive creativity of the designer gave life to a seat with original, one-of-a-kind lines, comfortable and enveloping: Togo. The wrinkled effect is the essence of its charm.
Togo was presented in 1973 at the Salon des Arts Ménagers of the Palais de la Défense in Paris; despite being considered highly original, it didn’t achieve the desired success and the unusual absence of the legs was viewed as an oversight. But the high quality and the affordable price awarded it the René-Gabriel prize given to “innovative and democratic furniture”. The brand was not discouraged and invested its energy and creativity in the Togo project, designing its shapes and proposing colours and finishes that lead to its great international fame.
From the prototype of the Togo padded seat, Ducaroy has produced countless modules inspired by it: from single seats to 4 seater sofa, with footrests and the option of creating a striking corner composition which captures all the attention in the living room.
In addition to its aesthetic, Togo is cherished for its great comfort. Fully padded, soft and plush to the touch, it is the ideal seat on which to relax, read and spend moments of conviviality. Togo’s padding can be “dressed” with a variety of upholstery and coverings. The polyester ensures the utmost comfort thanks to its flexibility. The leather cover, instead, reinforces the elegance of the shapes whilst velvet adds a touch of refinement.
Togo has a versatile nature and it can easily combine with any interior environment: it adds an original vintage touch to open spaces with an industrial character and it fits harmoniously in minimal contexts, either combined in a bold mix-and-match with contemporary furniture, or warming up the atmosphere of settings in which the concept plays with stone and raw materials.
