The Rits 7640 Sofa by Gelderland
The Rits 7640 Sofa
The first sofa designed by Bertjan Pot for Gelderland is the 7640, a basic design without any frills. The designer challenged Gelderland to see whether it could be done: come up with a sofa that is as thin as possible but still feels comfortable to sit on. Many sofas are giant blocks of foam, made from expensive petroleum. The 7640 creates comfort differently: a double layer of webbing and a thin layer of foam. The couch stands relatively high on its legs so that you do not sink into as forcefully and can get back up with ease. Plus, the sofa is really comfy to recline on, too, even for tall people. Filled with buckwheat hulls, the cushions are not attached, which makes them suitable to use as pillows, laptop rests and much more.
