A dynamic dance

Portraying the versatility of its designs through the grace of dancers, Belgian design house JORI is a conceptual realisation of ergonomic comfort woven into the forms of contemporary interior pieces.

The Daydreamer Recliner.

Established in 1963, JORI has always had a singular mission: to provide the ultimate in ergonomic seating.

Working in collaboration with some of the design world’s leading names, JORI produces furniture that has become the international benchmark in seating comfort.

Now available in New Zealand exclusively through Source Mondial, the JORI range is a natural addition to Source Mondial’s cornerstone offering, a curation of the finest rugs and carpets from around the world.

Available through its Parnell, Auckland, showroom, Source Mondial carries a wide range of JORI products, including the iconic Daydreamer recliner. Designed by Joachim Nees, Daydreamer provides a refuge after a challenging day. With nothing so humdrum as a straight or flat surface, Daydreamer is just the place to snuggle down into and is exactly the kind of comfort experience that connoisseurs have come to expect from JORI. Available in a range of colours and a combination of fabric and leather upholstery.

A starlet in its own right, the Sophia Landscape sofa has been designed to be the leading lady of the living room. Designed by Cuno Frommherz, and featuring pronounced curves and customisable back cushions, Sophia radiates the perfect amount of feminine elegance and curative comfort, its organic form following the gentle contours of a mountain landscape in the moonlight.

The Fuga Armchair.

Designed by Frans Schrofer, the Fuga armchair is like that amiable neighbour who always invites you in for a good chat. Fuga is available with a high or low back for customisable comfort, while its finely sculpted flanks are designed to embrace, facilitating long, comfortable conversations.

The Rumba chair’s design offers a paradox. It has three feet on the ground, with a light structure and small frame; it’s about active comfort and delivering a cocooning embrace — juxtaposing the concepts of weight and comfort, and active and passive.

“Just as Source Mondial’s rugs can be adapted to a client’s preferences, JORI not only elevates but personalises the way people experience comfort in their homes. It is a brand that resonates with those seeking exceptional craftsmanship, timeless elegance, and sublime comfort,” Source Mondial’s Martin Buchegger says.
