The Mariposa Sofa radiates an inviting aura of spacious comfort – and yet maintains a subtly understated presence thanks to its balanced proportions.‎ The sofa owes its extraordinary comfort, on the one hand, to the pleasantly soft upholstery, which completely surrounds the sitter and prevents contact with any hard structural elements.‎ On the other hand, an ingenious adjustment mechanism makes it possible to individually tilt the side and backrest elements for various sitting or reclining positions.‎
These design elements are combined to create an oasis of soft, snug comfort.‎ The name of the sofa refers to its refined functionality: the wing-like motion range of the soft, slender panels reminded the designers of a butterfly – 'Mariposa' in Spanish.‎

The Mariposa sofas offer solutions for a wide range of requirements in regard to size and spatial planning: the Mariposa Love Seat provides spacious seating for one person or – as the name suggests – a cosy spot for two love birds.‎ The Mariposa 2-Seater is an ideal choice for small, urban apartments where it offers full comfort despite its compact dimensions.‎ These two models come with one continuous seat cushion – in contrast to the larger 2½-seater and 3-seater versions of Mariposa: fitted with two seat cushions, these sofas invite users to stretch out lengthwise and use the adjustable armrests as a back or neck rest – for instance, as a relaxing place to read or take a nap.‎
Unlike the other models of the Mariposa family, the Mariposa Club armchairs do not have adjustable side panels and backrests.‎ However, despite being more compact in size, they echo the design of their larger counterparts, offering pleasantly soft upholstery and a high degree of comfort – on the Swivel Armchair version this is further enhanced by a flat swivel base with an auto-return mechanism.‎
The range of sofas is complemented by round ottomans in two different sizes.‎ They not only harmonise with the soft contours of the sofas, but also create even more ways to enjoy Mariposa's superb comfort.‎
The Mariposa Sofa does not openly display its functional features: the slim side and back elements can be individually adjusted – continuously and silently – from an upright position to an outward angle of approximately 30° and back again.‎ The resistance is calibrated in such a way that these elements stay in place when the sitter leans back in a normal manner, but will adjust to the desired angle when intentional pressure is applied.‎ This flexibility allows individual users to determine the position that is most comfortable for them.‎
Thanks to the unusual depth of the seat surface, two people can sit on either end and comfortably face each other – to carry on a conversation or share a cosy spot for reading.‎ With these special features, the Mariposa Sofa offers an inviting place to prop up your feet and relax.‎
