The Ponte sofa by Basta boasts a simple and laid-back yet distinctively robust design. Created by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, the sofa is based on clear lines and play with proportions, which can be seen, for example, in the slightly unusual placement of the legs.

The Ponte sofa is designed with the modern, mobile lifestyle in mind. The sofa is delivered flat-packed with an extremely easy assembly: its frame can be folded into shape without any tools, with the cushions and legs then simply slid into place. When moving day arrives, the sofa is just as easy to disassemble, and it can be carried into the new apartment without necessarily having to hire moving help to carry it. The Ponte sofa is a reliable partner that will travel with you from one home to another – it is designed to withstand disassembly and reassembly time and time again.

Marcel Wanders

The Dutch designer Marcel Wanders (born 1963) graduated from ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem in 1988. In 1995, he opened his own studio in Amsterdam and, only a year after, he received a lot of international recognition by creating the iconic Knotted Chair. 

Today, the studio of Wanders employs several dozen design experts and creates designs for well-known brands as Alessi, KLM, Swarovski, and Puma. Wanders is also the co-founder of the design brand Moooi, known for innovative, out-there furniture, and Creative Director of Finnish-based design brand Basta.

Many consider Wanders as anomaly of the design world and he has made it his mission to ”create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.”
