The In Situ modular sofa is a large, deep and cosy modular sofa that can be adapted to each individual space, whether private or public. The elegant and straight lines are balanced by the play of mobile cushions. The technical elements allowing its modularity are hidden in its steel structure.
Anderssen & Voll: “With the In Situ Modular Sofa, we wanted to combine the functions of modularity with the beauty of simple, elegant lines and a deep comfort. We sketched a profile that runs along the seat and back of the sofa to subtly hide the visual elements of modularity, giving it a unique character while bringing the individual modules together for a complete appearance. This is paired with grand, sculptural lines and the inherent comfort of its soft seat. The In Situ Modular Sofa combines the grandeur of traditional Italian sofas with the refined simplicity of Scandinavian design, making it the heart of any space.

On Their Design Philosophy: “A good product builds and expands on tradition while simultaneously breaking the rules of said tradition. Modifications and elements of surprise, even changes that are less radical, stimulate thought and reflection, also who may not hold a particular interest in design. This tiny second of reflection is the window of opportunity where we can communicate with the users and that’s what we strive to tap into.”
The long-standing studio: The studio of Andersson & Voll is located in the heart of Oslo, housed in one of the oldest buildings in the area dating back to 1802 – a farm structure-cum-studio located next to the beautiful river of Akerselva, an area that is home to several design studios and art schools.
On Scandinavian Design: “Scandinavian design isn’t merely a label to place onto products – it’s a commitment by Muuto to let the brand grow dynamically in companionship with the emerging ideas and concerns of young Scandinavian designers. The term functions as an invitation, a challenge, and a motivating element to us as designers.”
