About the Designer
Hella Jongerius Hella Jongerius  

Hella Jongerius has become known for the special way she fuses industry and craft, high and low tech, tradition and the contemporary. After graduating Design Academy Eindhoven in 1993 she started her own design company, Jongeriuslab, through which she produces her own projects and projects for clients such as Maharam, Royal Tichelaar Makkum, Vitra and IKEA. Her work has been shown at museums and galleries such as the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, MoMA, the Design Museum, Galerie KREO and Moss gallery. Since 1998 she has been teaching at the Design Academy Eindhoven since. Her carpet 'Repeat' was awarded with the Rotterdam design prize in 2003.

With the quiet irony typical for her work, Hella Jongerius named her new sofa for Vitra, the Polder Sofa. In Holland, Polder refers to the artificial land reclaimed from the sea by means of dykes and drainage canals. The body of the Polder Sofa is just as low-lying, just as flat, and has just as much emphasis on the horizontal as does the Dutch landscape. For it, Hella Jongerius chose five carefully selected combinations of colors and fabric qualities, accentuating them with high-tech threads and large buttons.This play with colors and textures underscores the asymmetry of the piece, and together with the large buttons decorating the cushions are unmistakable trademarks of the Polder Sofa. Made of natural materials like bone and mother of pearl, the buttons are sewn to the cushions with bold broad cross stitches. Through the selection of the threads, Hella Jongerius creates a contrast of colors that further enhances the distinctiveness of this design feature.

Design:
  • Design is the process by which almost all objects in Vitra's surroundings are instilled with a specific design and function - from cars to paper clips, from clothing to chairs. And design does not just mean giving things a shape. Design creates the basis which enables things to function in the desired manner. It is a process in which complementary but often mutually contradictory requirements have to be met (comfort, technology, ergonomics, ecology, economics, aesthetics). Design can be successful only when the balance of all these factors is attained.

Quality:
  • Once in the factory, Vitra staff manufacture furniture to precise standards, individually ensuring the quality of each product.
  • Vitra has been certified for DIN EN ISO 9001: 2000.
  • Vitra's focus on quality does not end at the factory door - they believe that providing clients with exceptional service is just as important as manufacturing furniture. In order to make certain Vitra clients enjoy consistently high quality in all Vitra products, they have set up their own test center which monitors products against criteria that are far more stringent than the statutory standards.

Ergonomics:
  • Ergonomics is an applied science that studies the relationship between human beings and machines. Vitra produces furniture that responds to the ergonomic requirements of the body and as a consequence has a positive effect on health and well-being. All Vitra products (except for the experimental series Vitra Edition) have been tested by independent institutions. They comply with prescribed standards under the European Directive on VDU Work and are marked with the GS seal (= Geprüfte Sicherheit or Tested Safety, seal of the independent certification company LGA).

Ecology:
  • Vitra's contribution to ecological conservation does not stop with a close examination of materials and processes. All aspects of the company's work involve ecological thinking.
  • In 1991, Vitra set up an internal ecology committee to discuss environmental topics. This team identifies new tasks, and its project teams work together to find solutions.
  • Vitra uses only non-CFC foams and adhesives free of toxic solvents; all possible materials are recycled. Wherever possible, Vitra uses recycled materials.
  • Vitra's goal during production is to minimize noise and emission levels as well as to reduce waste. Packaging materials are kept to a minimum and re-used as often as possible.
