Vitra Soft Modular Sofa Three-Seater
Vitra Soft Modular Sofa Three-Seater
The Soft Modular Sofa is Jasper Morrison's updated interpretation of what has become a modern classic: the low-slung modular sofa with a decidedly horizontal emphasis. Uniting carefully balanced proportions, great comfort and a conscious renunciation of decorative details, the Soft Modular Sofa exemplifies the characteristics of this sofa type in their purest form. Firmly in line with his philosophy of 'super normal' design, Jasper Morrison has successfully coupled home-like informality with precise finishing and expressive clarity. As a result, the Soft Modular Sofa functions like an architectural element that can be subtly integrated in any interior.
Combine and assemble
Thanks to its modular design with side, corner and central elements as well as a chaise longue, the size and form of the Soft Modular Sofa can be customised to meet a diverse range of requirements. And optional elements like the ottoman and additional cushions as well as a wide selection of leather and fabric covers in a variety of colours allow further personalisation of any individual configuration.

The construction of the Soft Modular Sofa provides outstanding comfort: the underlying foundation is a box-like wooden frame, which rests on individually height-adjustable legs concealed by the black base frame. No-sag steel springs are integrated in the seat area of the wooden frame. These ensure that the cushions return to their original shape after use and prevent ripples from forming in the cover material. The seat and back cushions consist of two optimally coordinated types of foam with varying degrees of firmness. The upholstery structure is completed with a layer of viscoelastic foam, which keeps the sitter from sinking too deeply into the seat.
All these elements are carefully balanced, ensuring that the Soft Modular Sofa satisfies the comfort needs of all customers. The back and armrests have a similar construction and can be sat on without fear of damaging the upholstery. No animal feathers are used in the upholstery. This avoids the typical rustling sound associated with such materials and also makes the Soft Modular Sofa suitable for people who are allergic to animal feathers.
Jasper Morrison, 2016
Jasper Morrison lives and works in London and Tokyo. His designs are expressions of the super normal design philosophy: rather than seeking unusual or extravagant results. He often breathes new life into proven solutions by means of reinterpretation, further development, and refinement. He has worked together with Vitra on a regular basis since 1989.
Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark in design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately becoming the powerhouse design institution we see today.
