The extraordinary comfort of the variously sized Mariposa sofas derives from their pleasantly soft upholstery and the adjustment mechanism in the arm and backrest elements.
The expansive 3-seater provides plenty of space and invites users to stretch out lengthwise, using the adjustable armrests as a back or neck rest to relax and read or take 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.
