Sofa (asymmetrical)


Polder sofa (2005), Hella Jongerius

Designed in 2005 by Hella Jongerius, the Polder Sofa is the most iconic asymmetrical sofa, mainly because of its unusual mix of fabrics, colours, industrial elements and craft details. The name and the design refer to the Dutch ‘polder’ landscape: an artificial piece of land taken from the sea using long horizon­tal dykes and canals. The Polder Sofa was Jongerius’ first industrially designed piece of furniture and is manufactured by Vitra.
