Dezeen Showroom: Zurich-based designer Alfredo Häberli has created the Dado modular sofa system for furniture brand Andreu World, which can be pieced together like a puzzle.

The Dado sofa system comprises a series of modules that can be combined to create different seating configurations for a variety of contexts and environments.

Häberli has created modules with curved corners, for instance, as well as modules that are open on both sides with just a backrest in order to be lined up next to each other to form one long sofa.

Modules with no sides at all are also available, to allow for an island of seats or to serve as footstools.

Users can piece together their own sofa design like Tetris blocks. As the Spanish furniture brand explains, the idea is "to offer infinite possibilities of creating and composing" the sofas, in order for the user to customise them to their own space.

"The design of Dado embodies the philosophy of the Andreu World brand, which deals with comfort, precise detail and furniture as a catalyst for an interesting cultural exchange," said Häberli.

"Dado is a very comfortable modular sofa that emerges of a precise set of proportions, volumes and colour. A neutral piece that adapts to any environment."

"Tradition and innovation are at the heart of my work as a designer and are the foundations on which Andreu World is based, it is a very natural association," the designer added.

Each sofa module can be upholstered in a variety of colours, from burnt orange and mustard yellow to dusty blue and soft grey.
