Fabric sofa

Manufacture year


In the home country of Dutch designer Hella Jongerius, the word ‚polder‘ refers to low-lying flatlands, typically subdivided into fields serving various agricultural purposes, that have been reclaimed from the sea by means of dykes and drainage canals.‎ With their flat surfaces, low-slung body and horizontal emphasis, both Polder sofas evoke the characteristic features of the polder landscape.‎
The large seat cushions of the Polder Sofa and Polder Compact form an extremely comfortable, asymmetrical seating surface that is flanked on both sides by the upholstered body.‎ The shape of the body is what distinguishes the two sofas: a low armrest is integrated on one end of the Polder Sofa, while the other is bordered by an adjoining platform that also serves as a storage surface for magazines, books or trays.‎ The Polder Sofa thus o ers plenty of space to stretch out and relax, whether sitting or lying down.‎ The Polder Compact, by contrast, features a body with two armrests in different heights, which demarcate the smaller dimensions of the sofa.‎ The higher armrest also makes it possible to sit comfortably in a sideways position – either for reading or watching television.‎
With their distinctively asymmetrical structure, both Polder sofas can be optionally configured with the higher armrest on the left or right side, making them adaptable to different spatial settings.‎ Since the platform for the Polder Sofa is separately available, it can also be used as an ottoman.‎
The upholstered cushions and body of the sofas are covered with fabrics in carefully coordinated hues and weaves: shades of green, red, golden yellow or night blue.‎ In place of standard upholstery fabrics, textiles developed exclusively for Vitra by Hella Jongerius are used as cover materials – thereby intensifying the subtle interplay of colours and textures that typifies the design.‎
