Back in Stock: Gesture Chair – Dark

Designed by
Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby
for Vitra 2014

The variously sized sofas of the Mariposa family are cosy and inviting, yet with a modern touch. They owe their extraordinary comfort to the pleasantly soft upholstery and an ingenious adjustment mechanism, which makes it possible to individually adapt the side and backrest elements for various sitting or reclining positions.

The Mariposa sofas do not openly display their functional features: the slim side and back elements can be continuously and silently adjusted, from an upright position to an outward angle of approximately 30° and back again.
