The Mariposa Sofa by Vitra radiates an inviting aura of spacious comfort – and yet maintains a subtly understated presence thanks to its balanced proportions.
The sofa owes its extraordinary comfort, on the one hand, to the pleasantly soft upholstery, which completely surrounds the sitter and prevents contact with any hard structural elements. On the other hand, an ingenious adjustment mechanism makes it possible to individually tilt the side and backrest elements for various sitting or reclining positions. Though conceived as a two-seater, the Mariposa Sofa offers sufficient seating space for three people. The name of the sofa refers to its refined functionality: the wing-like motion range of the soft, slender panels reminded the designers of a butterfly – ‘Mariposa’ in Spanish.
