The Tape sofa is a modular sofa designed by Benjamin Hubert for Moroso. The design comprises a series of modernist building blocks that can be combined in various contrasting and complementary combinations to suit a diverse range of interior spaces and styles.
The Tape sofa consists of modular blocks (seats, backrests, and arms) and is subdivided into smaller textile panels which are bonded together using polyurethane tape. The technique was inspired by the sporting industry, where the tape is used in the construction of snowboarding, ski, and wet-weather gear. Pockets – which are connected to the arm modules using tape – can be used to gather and store papers, magazines, or remote controls. The covers of the Tape sofa, which are not removable, are available in a wide range of fabrics. Please contact us for more information on available options and advice on fabrics.
