Hella Jongerius

The Worker Sofa

The project

The Worker Sofa that Hella Jongerius designed for Vitra was initially meant to be used in the kitchen, sun lounge, or reading room. Due to its compact dimensions, great seating comfort, and the typically Jongerius details, the Worker Sofa is also an excellent addition to the living room or the lounge. The Worker Sofa combines aspects of traditional craftsmanship with modern construction methods.


Successful, stimulating combination of modern furniture tradition and the design of vernacular consumer products. The sofa is a splendid extension of the already existing Worker Chair.
