Inspired by Hella Jongerius’ home country - the Netherlands - the Polder Sofa’s name references a characteristic feature of the Dutch landscape: a polder is a low-lying stretch of land that has been reclaimed from the sea.
The Polder Sofa by Hella Jongerius creates a focal point in any interior: its asymmetrical shape and cushions in various fabrics and colours have given it a distinctive iconic look.
Together with the Dutch designer, Vitra has now developed a new version in colours and fabrics exclusively available from Vitra. This delicate mix of pastel shades shows the sofa in a fresh, soft light and is available as special edition from 1 September 2018 until 31 December 2019.
Structural frame: wooden frame. Seat cushions: polyurethane foam with interactive pocket spring core, chamber cushions (filled with foam cubes and feathers) and polyester fleece. Back cushions: polyurethane foam with polyester fleece and chamber cushions (filled with foam cubes and feathers). Armrest cushion: detached bolster, freely positionable, sand-weighted, polyurethane foam filling. Cover: coordinated combinations of various colors and fabric types, removable.
