The variously sized sofas of the Mariposa family are cosy and inviting, yet with a modern touch.
Fitted with two seat cushions, the 2½-seater offers an inviting place to stretch out lengthwise and use the adjustable armrests as a back or neck rest – for instance, to relax with a good book or indulge in a nap.
STRUCTURAL FRAME Webbed metal frame with polyurethane foam.
SEAT CUSHIONS Polyurethane and visco foams with chamber cushion overlay. Chamber cushion overlay filled with feathers and PU rods.
BACK AND ARMREST CUSHIONS Chamber cushion filled with stripped-quill feathers and PU rods.
GLIDES Plastic glides with levelling adjustment.
NOTE For transport purposes Mariposa can be partially disassembled. The instructions can be found in the SSE.
Edward Barber, born in Shrewsbury in 1969, and Jay Osgerby, born in Oxford in 1969, studied architecture and interior design as fellow students at the Royal College of Art in London. In 1996, they founded their own studio for design and architecture under the name Barber & Osgerby. Since that time, their collaborative work has probed the interface between industrial design, furniture design and architecture.
