Hella Jongerius - The Worker Sofa
“Form follows feeling” – this is the creed that Hella Jongerius adheres to in her design work. Indeed, “The Worker” is appealing thanks to the strange interplay within it of handcraftsmanship and technological elements.
The Worker Sofa was created by Hella Jongerius primarily as an communicative piece of furniture that would be well suited to the kitchen, winter garden or reading room. Due to its compact dimensions, great comfort, and the light-hearted detailing that is typical of Jongerius' work, the Worker sofa also makes a good impression in the living room or lounge environment. Like the Worker chair, the sofa combines the qualities of traditional craftsmanship with modern construction methods and a subtle, sophisticated mix of materials.
Hella Jongerius has an ability to observe and interpret the way people live in today's world - analyzing contemporary needs with great precision and responding with thoughtful, meaningful objects. After working with the well-known Dutch design group Droog Design, Hella opened her studio, Jongeriuslab, in 2000. Her works in the field of textiles and ceramics combine industrial production with techniques and motifs inspired by traditional handicrafts.
