Minimalistic Ottoman Seat with Organic Form


Dutch duo Scholten & Baijings incorporated their trademark minimalistic and geometric designs from the Block & Grid fabric for Maharam designing the Ottoman for Moroso. The Ottoman design is characterized by rounder, softer and more organic forms. This forms stands in contrast with the fabric angular colour compositions and creates a magnificent symbiosis.



The seat height is lower than usual, and the furniture’s open design allows more freedom of movement. Spatial dimensions, layered patterns and colour use are central considerations in the fabric design. Scholten & Baijings first sketches and scale models consist of soft, rectangular daybeds that offer multiple uses: sitting, leaning against, lounging or lying down, alone or with each other.
