Designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, 2014.
The Mariposa Sofa radiates an inviting aura of spacious comfort, with an ingenious adjustment mechanism, which makes it possible to individually tilt the side and backrest elements for various sitting or reclining positions.
the slim side and back elements can be continuously and silently adjusted, from an upright position to an outward angle of approximately 30° and back again. The resistance is calibrated in such a way that these elements stay in place when the sitter leans back in a normal manner, but will adjust to the desired angle when intentional pressure is applied. This flexibility allows individual users to determine the position that is most comfortable for them. Thanks to the unusual depth of the seat surface, two people can sit on either end and comfortably face each other.
