Facebook acquires Dutch design agency Sofa

The world’s biggest social network Facebook acquired the Dutch design and software company Sofa from Amsterdam.

Sofa is best known for its Mac applications Kaleidoscope and Versions.

Sofa started in 2006 and set out to make friendly, useful and enjoyable products that matter to people.

Over the years, they built an awesome team of designers and developers around this mission. Together, they created great software that many people use and enjoy every day.

The Sofa team will be moving from Amsterdam to Palo Alto in the coming weeks – and they will make sure to infuse some of their particular flavor of Dutch culture at Facebook.

Sofa’s products, Kaleidoscope and Versions, are not a part of this acquisition. Both apps will remain available and they’re committed to securing a great future for them outside Sofa.

They’re also working with their joint venture partner to provide the smoothest transition and best possible future for Checkout, Enstore and their collective customers. For more details see this page.
