The Soft Modular Sofa is Jasper Morrison's updated interpretation of what has become a modern classic: the low-slung modular sofa with a decidedly horizontal emphasis. Uniting carefully balanced proportions, great comfort and a conscious renunciation of decorative details, the Soft Modular Sofa exemplifies the characteristics of this sofa type in their purest form. Firmly in line with his philosophy of 'super normal' design, Jasper Morrison has successfully coupled home-like informality with precise finishing and expressive clarity. As a result, the Soft Modular Sofa functions like an architectural element that can be subtly integrated in any interior.Aura Stripes, a new striped fabric evoking the playful effects of light and shadow, was chosen by the British designer to emphasise the sofa's clean lines in many possible configurations. Aura Stripes comes in the colour marble and is exclusively available from Vitra as a cover fabric for the Soft Modular Sofa from 1 September 2018 to 31 December 2019.
The voluminous cushions invite the sitter to lounge and relax on the Soft Modular Sofa. Its high-quality interior construction, consisting of various foams and a spring core, offers superb comfort and ensures that the cushions return to their original form after use. On one hand, the black base frame is part of the functional design, enabling a practical and stable connection of the modules. On the other, as a plinth-like platform with rounded corners, it references the sensual elegance of art deco.
Different cushions are optionally available: neck cushions (with plastic bead filling) or decorative pillows (with PU chips and synthetic beads). The neck cushions come in a short and long version, while the decorative pillows are available in three sizes: 30 x 40 cm, 40 x 40 cm and 50 x 50 cm. The cushions can be ordered in the same choice of covers as the sofa elements.
The Soft Modular Sofa is available with two different types of high-quality leather covers in a variety of colours. The precisely stitched seams are indicative of the detailed workmanship that goes into the production of the sofa. The interior structure of the upholstery ensures that the cushions always return to their original shape – helping to prevent the formation of wrinkles and creases.
