Salone 2012: Hella Jongerius for Vitra
Collaborating with Vitra and Maharam, designer Hella Jongerius reintroduces her iconic Polder sofa in a limited-edition run of 100, out of which only nine will be sold in the US.
The designer's 2005 Maharam Polder Sofa, which has a shape meant to reference the flat polder landscape of the Netherlands, reappeared in a limited edition at Vitra's space at Salone 2012. Six different autumnal fabrics by Maharam, some of which were designed by Jongerius herself, covered the piece. Only 100 will be sold worldwide, nine in the U.S., and from the reaction of the crowds on the exhibition floor in Milan, we wouldn't wait long to get our order in.
