The furniture whisperer
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/24/2018
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
The Soft Modular Sofa is Jasper Morrison’s current interpretation of what has become a modern classic: the low-slung modular sofa with a decidedly horizontal emphasis. Uniting carefully composed 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. Due to its shape, the Soft Modular Sofa functions like an architectural element that can be subtly integrated into any interior.
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 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.
Thanks to its modular design with side, corner and central elements as well as a chaise longue, the size and form of the Soft Modular Sofa can be adapted to a diverse range of requirements. And with optional elements like the ottoman and loose pillows, in addition to the wide selection of leather and fabric covers in a variety of colours, each desired configuration can be even further individualised.
