Vitra Mariposa Sofa
Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, 2014
The Mariposa Sofa radiates spacious cosiness and yet has an understated feel due to its well-balanced proportions. Its pleasantly soft upholstery provides extraordinary comfort: the user sinks into its sea of cushions with not a hard surface to be felt. The sophisticated adjustment mechanism for the side and back rests also offers the option to adjust the sitting or lying position individually. Though designed as a two-seater, the Mariposa Sofa offers more than enough room for three people.
The name of the sofa hints at its sophisticated features: the flexible design of the slender yet softly yielding arm and back rests brings to mind “mariposa”, Spanish for butterfly.
