About The Collection

Soft lines bring a soothing aesthetic to a contemporary classic celebrated for its sensual simplicity. The Delphi Sofa. As a signature detail, a unique curve descends from the armrests at both ends of the sofa. In between is an uninterrupted space for sitting, lounging and stretching out. The comfort factor has been carefully considered and incorporated into the seat and back, to create a sofa without cushions. Additionally, the low back is aligned with the arms, which adds to the streamlined sophistication.

As a companion to the sofa, the Delphi Ottoman can be added to create a chaise longue look. The square shape and ample dimensions give you the option of using it as extra seating for guests. To place your computer and other essentials. Or to enjoy as a footrest.

Delphi Elements signals a similar soft simplicity in a lifestyle solution that’s inventive in terms of options. The concept is comprised of 14 modules that you can arrange in a vast variety of configurations for a one-of-a-kind sofa scenario. There are versions without armrests to create sofa clusters of various shapes. Including the seat as a separate element to combine into a chaise longue or stand on its own. The depth of each module has been meticulously measured to ensure a comfortable experience sitting or relaxing for hours. Just like the Delphi Sofa, it involves expert upholstery skills to incorporate comfort into each piece without cushions.

With its elegant expression and options for creating countless sofa configurations, the Delphi Collection is suitable for an array of sectors. From hospitality venues, corporate environments, commercial settings and retail spaces to private residences.

Delphi was conceived by Hannes Wettstein, an award-winning Swiss designer considered one of the most innovative talents of his generation. A highly-regarded figure in the industry, known for surprisingly simple solutions that outlasted time. His focus spanned a broad scope of industries, from furniture, interior design and architecture to consumer products and communications. Wettstein died prematurely in 2008 but his designs continue to be celebrated around the world to this day.
