Whether you’re looking to inspire collaboration in a casual office setting, make a statement in your living room, or invigorate a student union, Wilkes Modular Sofa Group hits the mark. It comes in a range of configurations, from a single chair to a six-seat sofa, and – the beauty of modularity – you can specify a table instead of a seat unit anywhere along the run. A power option offers additional functionality.

Comfort starts with geometry – specifically the 105-degree angle of the seat and back. Steel brackets that join the seat and back have enough given that each back section can flex independently, providing a surprising level of individual comfort. The final factor? The rounded-edge cushions themselves likened to the shape of Chiclet gum, which never “puddle” or lose their shape.

For upholstery, you can go full PoMo with bright solids or put an entirely different twist on it with a textile from Maharam. Its distinctive silhouette paired with versatile upholstery options makes it adaptable to a wide variety of architectural styles.


The Wilkes Modular Armchair can be customised in a range of upholstery options, please enquire for more information.
