Rolf Benz: JOLA

Vis-à-vis relaxation.

How are we going to live? What is the role of our home? The design team at Rolf Benz has been asking itself these questions more intensively than ever before. Versatility and interaction are at the core of their considerations. The intuitive Rolf Benz JOLA sofa range was designed for the relaxed international lifestyle.


With its laid-back seat depth and diminutive size, Rolf Benz JOLA exudes an air of generosity in all rooms – as a two-piece modularsofa even in the form of an arc. Whether as a couple, with guests or alone, the relax corner element allows you to sit back and communicate in different ways. The sofa therefore has three different options: The loose backrest cushions from Rolf Benz JOLA can be positioned wherever you like, on the back as well as on the side section. This means that two people can relax face-to-face, even on the individual sofa that is also available, with their legs on the casual upholstery. Various additional cushions allow you to create your own individual favourite position. For real high-backed comfort, backrest cushions are available with a hidden, sewn-in neck cushion.

As is usual with the design company from the Black Forest, in addition to the various planning options for its layout, Rolf Benz JOLA offers plenty more opportunities for interpreting the sofa in your own style – in this case, even including the size of the backrest cushions. You can select these either in the same size as the seat frame or 10 cm narrower. This creates an especially lightweight and open appearance. Two seat heights, four leg versions and the wide range of covers from Rolf Benz provide many additional options to individualise the sofa.

Flexible partner: Rolf Benz 931 and Rolf Benz 922

Coordinating with Rolf Benz JOLA and other sofas, the Cologne-based design duo kaschkasch have created the Rolf Benz 931 furniture range consisting of shelving, a coffee table and a serving trolley. A curved circular tube determines the fine graphic structure of the mobile assistant. The shelving can be positioned to the side or to the rear of the sofa. All three designs also work as visually attractive standalone items in the room. They have lockable rollers or glides and are optionally available in solid wood or natural stone. The flexibility of the new Rolf Benz 922 side table is intuitive. Hamburg studio labsdesign has created a side table, which is as style-conscious as it is practical with two handles, that can be used almost anywhere.
