Modern Sofas would like to present today the sofa design for Moroso. Ottoman was launched at the Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan last year. It is a range of daybeds upholstered in a fabric called Blocks and Grid, which Scholten & Baijings designed for New York textiles brand Maharam.
Before designing with Moroso, Scholten & Baijings had collaborated with furniture brand Herman Miller to upholster a range of chairs in the Blocks and Grid fabric, but this is the first time a piece of furniture has been specifically designed for it.

The designers intended to design a piece of furniture specifically for the Blocks and Grid fabric. Blocks and Grid is woven from wool and nylon, and features a pattern of intersecting lines and rectangles.
“We designed a textile with a repeat of nine metres, because we worked out that a two- or three-seater sofa needed a nine-metre repeat to not have a repeat [in the pattern] on the sofa,” Baijings explains. “The consumer can get a unique product in a mass-produced textile.”

The design duo, Scholten & Baijings, chose to contrast the geometric blocks and lines of the upholstery with a curvaceous scoop-like seat and rounded cushions. They used juxtaposing colours for the seat and cushions, pairing neutral greys with vibrant pinks, greens or yellows.
