Stockholm designer Monica Förster has made a modular sofa method for Swedish furniture brand Fogia with a padded cover folded more than the armrests.

Förster’s Retreat method is characterised by the cushions that wrap more than the back and armrests of the personal modules and continue all the way to the base.

“The idea has been to give the impression of a padded cover bending softly above the armrest and then onto the seat, giving the feeling of comfort and softness thus generating a warm ambiance,” mentioned Förster.

“We targeted on the armrest, generating a robust detail with the wrinkles and motion of the textile,” she added. “It is daring but soft and smooth at the identical time.”

The program for Fogia comprises six lower square modules, which come in 5 distinct sizes with and without having armrests.

Retreat is a sofa system for both public and residence environments,” Förster advised Dezeen. “The modules can be mixed to develop a larger sofa family members with lounge components but the modules are made quite tiny so that it is also possible to match into a smaller sized home environment.”

The padding is created from layers of different densities of foam, topped with down for extra comfort. A zip in the textile covers enables removal for cleansing.

Retreat is a timeless modular sofa manufactured to stand up to passing trends,” explained a statement from Fogia. “Daring nevertheless soft, Retreat is based around an undulating base unit that can be tailored to make locations of cosy reflection or opened up for festivities.
