MOTU / Modular sofa system


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

MOTU takes inspiration from the islands of Aotearoa (New Zealand). From an isolated environment that facilitates focus and concentration to a comforting, secluded space that can create a stronger feeling of community with those around you, all elements are developed to be assembled flexibly. The organic lounge group MOTU by Kiwi designer Jonas Froetschl is captivatingly versatile. The group includes a 1- and 2-person sofa, a chaise lounge, a side table, and a stool, and can be oriented in a variety of different configurations. This modular furniture is suitable for a wide range of applications.
