We are fascinated by large, unusual sofas and sectionals, so you bet we perked right up when we spotted this mid century Non Stop Sofa designed by Uli (Ueli?) Berger for Stendig. It’s currently for sale by ebay seller walterjmack, who kindly let us feature his photos. According to the listing, this 1960s (1972?) sofa is from the Palmolive aka “Playboy” building in Chicago. Nonstop sofas are made up of segments connected by zippers and pins that allow them to bend into many configurations — making them able to do fun tricks like a giant slinky.
This couch can be curved in, as shown above, curved out, made into and “s” curve, and “l” curve or straightened out — making it both a versatile and unique piece of mid century furniture. Looks like it would be pretty comfortable too.
