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 also 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.
