Modular through and through: The new Costume sofa system from Stefan Diez is pragmatic, transformable and protects resources – it’s the easy-going companion we wish for today. A state-of-the-art piece of furniture for today’s lifestyle: as transformable and pragmatic as necessary yet responsible in terms of the resources used. And last but not least, it shows just how innovative furniture design can be.

We set out to develop a sofa system that could be completely dismantled. With as little polyurethane foam as possible and a textile cover that is washable and can be replaced.
The system was to consist of only a few parts. At the beginning, it all seemed quite complicated, almost impossible. In the end, we worked on it for four years, but we managed it.

Up until now there were two ways of constructing a sofa. Either it consisted of a wooden frame with a structure of belts, spring core, foam and upholstery or it was based on a metal frame with built-in suspension, which was filled with foam, covered with foam padding and upholstered. Both variations have one thing in common: it takes a lot of effort and expense to repair them, the materials are difficult or impossible to separate and the sofa contains large quantities of foam that cannot be recycled.
Now Magis in collaboration with designer Stefan Diez has developed a completely new construction method for the Costume sofa whereby the individual components of the modular sofa are not permanently attached to each other. This means it can easily be dismantled, for example for cleaning or if new upholstery needs to be purchased.

Product Overview
While modular sofas are usually designed as a construction kit featuring many different elements, for example with or without armrests, Costume comes with a total of just four different elements: the actual seating module, which can be completed with a left or right armrest and an ottoman. A connector of plastic, which is pushed into the slots on all four corners of the seat, serves to connect the pieces. Available in matching as well as in contrasting colours, it creates an aesthetic feature. The four elements seat, armrests and ottoman can be assembled to form numerous combinations depending on requirements and space.

Production process
At the heart of Costume is a body made from recycled and recyclable polyethylene produced using rotational-moulding technology from furniture and car industry waste. An insert made of pocket spring cores provides the cushioning for the seat and backrest. On top of this is a thin layer of polyurethane foam. The whole is held together by a cover made of fabric that can be fastened on using tension belts and easily removed at any time. Not only does this system use much less foam in manufacturing than conventional sofas – most of the materials used can also easily be recycled. If the upholstery wears out one day, it can easily be replaced.
