Designed by Hella Jongerius for Vitra in a range of fabrics and carefully coordinated hues and weaves, the Polder Compact Sofa adds an eye-catching note to any interior. It is available in shades of green, red, night blue or golden yellow. The compact dimensions of this sofa make it especially well suited for smaller apartments.
In the home country of Dutch designer Hella Jongerius, the word 'polder' refers to low-lying flatlands, typically subdivided into fields serving various agricultural purposes, that have been reclaimed from the sea by means of dykes and drainage canals. With its flat surface, low-slung body and horizontal emphasis, the Polder Compact Sofa evokes the characteristic features of the polder landscape. The large seat cushions of the sofa form an extremely comfortable, asymmetrical seating surface that is flanked on both sides by the upholstered body.
The Polder Compact Sofa features a body with two armrests in different heights, which demarcate the smaller dimensions of the sofa. The higher armrest also makes it possible to sit comfortably in a sideways position – either for reading or watching television.
With its distinctively asymmetrical structure, the Polder Compact Sofa can be optionally configured with the higher armrest on the left or right side, making it adaptable to different spatial settings.
Pair with the larger Polder Sofa or the Polder Ottoman for a colourful sofa arrangement. The Polder Ottoman is a flexible element that can be optionally used to allow you to stretch out and relax. When positioned in front of the sofa, it forms a chaise-lounge.
