or Call to Order

Costume Modular Sofa rede­fines the lounge cate­gory setting a new stan­dard in eco-sustain­abil­ity. Stefan Diez and Magis set out together to develop a sofa system that could be completely disman­tled, with as little polyurethane foam as possi­ble and a textile cover that could be washed or replaced. Costume is the result. Its body comprises recy­cled and recy­clable poly­eth­yl­ene produced using rota­tional molding tech­nol­ogy from furni­ture and car indus­try waste. An insert made of pocket spring cores provides the cush­ion­ing for the seat and back­rest. On top of this is a thin layer of polyurethane foam. The whole is held together by a cover made of fabric that can be fastened using tension belts and easily removed at any time. Not only does this system use much less foam in manu­fac­tur­ing than conven­tional sofas – most of the mate­ri­als used are also easily recyclable.

Germany

The craftsmanship of carpentry profoundly influences Stefan Diez's work. Born in 1971 in Freisin, Germany, the industrial designer grew up in a household of 4th generation carpenters. He spent three years as a cabinet maker before attending the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, where he studied under Richard Sapper. In 2002, he founded his studio, and by 2008 created DIEZ OFFICE. Diez became a professor of industrial design at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe in 2007, teaching there until 2014. He then joined the School of Industrial Design Lund, Sweden in 2015 and continued to teach as the head of Industrial Design ID1 at Die Angewandte in Vienna. Diez’s industrial design work includes furniture, tableware, and home accessories. He often collaborates with various manufacturers including e15, Emu, HAY, Rosenthal, Thonet, Vibia, Wagner, and Wilkhahn.
