Mariposa Corner

Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, 2014/2020

The sofas of the Mariposa family owe their extraordinary comfort to the pleasantly soft all-over upholstery and the ingenious adjustment mechanism in the arm and backrest elements. These can be continuously adjusted to an outward angle of approximately 30°. The variously sized Mariposa models fulfil a range of different functions, from the armchair or love seat to the 2-seater and 2½-seater sofas to the large 3-seater.
