The new seating option Mochi is suitable both as a piece of furniture and as a colourful accessory in all kinds of living areas.
Like all designs of Hella Jongerius, Mochi bears the clear signature of the Dutch designer: The soft seating furniture with its loving details and various contrasting colour combinations makes a bold statement in any living environment. Mochi is both a spontaneous seating option and a decorative ottoman for lounge chairs and sofas. Mochi is initially a special japanese rice paste, used to prepare a traditional cake of the same name. It is their round, colorful and playful appearance, as well as their characteristic softness that inspired the name of the new pouf.
The knit-to-fit cover was specially developed for Mochi and is easy to remove and clean. Thanks to the robust floor cover, the pouf can be used everywhere.
