or Call to Order

The Oblong System sofas is a series of free-stand­ing and compos­able seats by Jasper Morri­son which offer the possi­bil­ity to create person­al­ized two-sided sofa forma­tions. This collec­tion is enhanced by numer­ous modules that can be used for endless compo­si­tions, where the inter­play between colors is at the fore­front.

Jasper Morrison’s Oblong System is padded with multi-density polyurethane foam and fiber, with remov­able covers in a selec­tion of fabrics and leathers from the collec­tion. The seat is avail­able in several differ­ent depths and widths; the end unit can come with or without an armrest.
