Vitra Polder Sofa

Hella Jongerius, 2005/2006

Germany

In Holland, “Polder” refers to the artificial land reclaimed from the sea by means of dykes and drainage canals. The body of the Polder Sofa is just as low-lying, just as flat, and has just as much emphasis on the horizontal. Hella Jongerius chose for it five carefully selected colour combinations and fabric qualities, accentuating them with high-tech threads and large buttons made of natural materials.
