Hella Jongerius



The Polder Ottomon by Vitra is a flexible element that can be optionally used as a side platform to extend the horizontal surface of the Polder Sofa. Positioned perpendicular to the sofa, it forms a chaise longue – and as an individual object it can be placed anywhere in the room to provide a practical seat or an extra surface for small items. The Ottoman comes in four predefined colours, which are perfectly coordinated with the respective colour schemes of the sofas.

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 their flat surfaces, low-slung body and horizontal emphasis, the Polder Sofa evokes the characteristic features of the polder landscape. The large seat cushions of the Polder Sofa form an extremely comfortable, asymmetrical seating surface that is flanked on both sides by the upholstered body. The shape of the body is what distinguishes the sofa: a low armrest is integrated on one end of the Polder Sofa, while the other is bordered by an adjoining platform that also serves as a storage surface for magazines, books or trays. The Polder Sofa thus offers plenty of space to stretch out and relax, whether sitting or lying down

In place of standard upholstery fabrics, textiles developed exclusively for Vitra by Hella Jongerius are used as cover materials – thereby intensifying the subtle interplay of colours and textures that typifies the design.
