Meet Frans Schrofer

Frans Schrofer has been the leading light of Dutch furniture design for the past three decades. He describes his guiding principles as 'creating tools for living' and his trademark is contemporary design with a twist. The son of renowned abstract painter Willem Schrofer, Frans grew up in a creative environment and today he runs one of the most innovative design houses in the Netherlands, Studio Schrofer, together with his multi-disciplined design team.

I make unexpected forms and take unconventional approaches, keeping function and aesthetics in mind as well as ergonomics.

The Athena recliner chair

Frans Schrofer designed the Athena as a private escape where you can lean back and relax after a long day while the soft shapes hug your body and provide perfect support. Athena is lighter and more modern than most other recliner chairs and will complement any room in your home without dominating it. With the Athena recliner, Frans Schrofer has once again made a fantastically beautiful piece of furniture with extraordinary comfort.
