Polar

Polar is a seating system inspired by the icebergs of the northern seas. Its components all feature solid volumes and oblique lines, which can be combined to create sofas and armchairs, with or without backrests. Versatile, cosy and aesthetically striking, the system is perfectly complemented by Polar coffee table.
