Modularity Meets Comfort: The Nodi Sofa

Modularity Meets Comfort: The Nodi Sofa

Versatile, adaptable and with an unparalleled level of comfort, take a load off in the Nodi Sofa by Tribu.

You may be familiar with the design firm Yabu Pushelberg, an award-winning creative duo that have been globally recognised since 1980. George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg believe in creating projects with the utmost attention to detail, and it is this philosophy that led them to numerous collaborations with Tribu

Tribu tasked the duo to design a sofa that was versatile in nature and strong in character. The Nodi sofa ticks the boxes, while also providing unparalleled comfort.

Refined Design

The Nodi sofa is recognisable with its distinctive side profile crafted from open weave in Canax®, to allow transparency and lightness that reflect a graphic shadow across the sofa and its surrounds. Canax® is a combination of natural hemp and synthetic fibres that create unbreakable polyester, ensuring strength and permanency. PVC ensures Canax® is resistant to water, frost, heat mildew and mould. It is also stain repellent and UV stable, making it durable and primed for any outdoor conditions. Ultimately, hemp creates an attractive matte look and natural finish.

The open weave is designed to have the perfect balance of durability and sophistication. 

The Nodi maintains a quiet personality through its gently curved frame that embraces the seat cushions - forming a noteworthy level of detail. The casual styling of the sofa cushions accentuates the relaxed aesthetic that ultimately ensures the design is nothing short of timeless.

I think that now more than ever, people want calmness. I think that Nodi Sofa is appropriate for its time because it has an intrinsic beauty to it and it’s extremely comfortable. It has a weightiness that doesn’t feel heavy. There’s an airiness to it that makes it breathe.” Yabu Pushelberg.

New-generation Comfort

A large part of Nodi's appeal lies in its cushions, an extra-soft and airy filling creates a supremely comfortable sofa. The filling itself is comprised of recyclable polyester fibres that conserve their bounce, in order to maintain a plump appearance after frequent use.

The water repellent cushion filling allows for them to remain outdoors as they are ready to endure rainy weather conditions. The water is prevented from penetrating the cushions by a combination of three strategies; the seams are protected internally with an extra covering, the fillings are covered in laminate and water repellent propylene as well as the swelling thread that is activated when wet.  

The Nodi Sofa is the perfect place enjoy a coffee outdoors.  Seen here with the Dunes side table. 


Modularity Meets Versatility

Beyond comfort and functionality, the Nodi is extremely versatile. With three seating elements, four seat depths and two types of back cushions, this sofa allows you to configure your sofa to perfectly fit to your needs and your space. 

Here two Nodi Sofa units with open ends create a flexible outdoor living room, sitting between them is the Natal Alu X coffee tables. 

From a formal three-seater, to casual daybeds or an extra-large corner sofa, the possibilities are endless. The Nodi sofa, in all its variations is an all encompassing sofa that provides you with a lounging experience like no other.
