or Call to Order

For the Otis Sofa, Johan van Hengel aimed to create slender, effi­cient shapes, and he came up with a clever solu­tion. The narrow, folded armrests provide optimal ease of use. A slight kink in the armrest lends the sofa char­ac­ter and superb comfort, often lacking in smaller frames. Otis is a customiz­able design, easily adjusted to specific size and style pref­er­ences. A wide range of options allows for great freedom of choice.

Offered in modular compo­nents, the Otis can be combined into a modest single-seat unit and forms a two‑, three‑, four‑, or ample five-seater. Addi­tional options include an XL-version with a deeper seat or a build­able corner sofa. Seat cush­ions are avail­able in firm, medium, soft and extra soft, and several have either two or three seat cush­ions. Thanks to its elegant profile and wide range of sizes and styles, the Otis will fulfill every seating desire.
