or Call to Order

The Aztec sofa designed by Gerard van den Berg for Montis features a rounded, robust and yet soft appear­ance, offer­ing a reas­sur­ing feeling of secu­rity as it embraces you from all sides. 

Recently rein­tro­duced and the new modi­fied version boasts an improved inte­rior that gives the sofa its signa­ture rounded shape, but the exte­rior is sleeker than that of its orig­i­nal prede­ces­sor. Thanks to the gener­ous height and width of its back and armrests, the Aztec meets all your modular demands. The back can be connected to an arm panel, which easily converts your couch into a corner sofa or a custom-made, extended model.

The firm, flat surface of the back and arm panels also serve as a comfort­able place to sit or a sturdy surface for a tray, stack of books or your laptop. The angled grooves on the insides make for inter­est­ing yet func­tional design detail, provid­ing maximum support and added comfort. Just try sitting at an angle, or lie down with your head against the high armrest – you’ll see that the comfort remains the same.

After leaving Montis in the early Nineties, Gerard has worked as a freelance designer and founded and new furniture comapny Label . Over the years his work for leading international furniture companies and numerous prizes and awards testify to his creative ability.
