Combining top-quality industrial design with a unique artistic approach, Ron Arad's Do-Lo-Rez system for Moroso stands out as an excellent choice for modern office environments. Inspired by the pixel, the fundamental building block of visual art, Do Lo Rez is comprised of soft square cuboids in a range of heights, allowing for boundless combinations of the basic modules. While appearing deceptively simple, each module has a complex structure, crafted to be stiffer at the base for stability and softer at the top for maximum comfort. With its recognizable aesthetic and infinite configurability, it enables users to create stunning arrangements that blur the lines between form and function.
In a collaboration that bridged geographical boundaries, designers Nendo and Luca Nichetto co-created Isole for &Tradition—a modular sofa concept inspired by the traditional Japanese poetry form, Tanka. Drawing from this poetic form, where one person begins the poem and the other completes it, the designers exchanged ideas and inspiration to ultimately create this sofa. The name 'Isole', meaning islands in Italian, pays homage to the unique design of this versatile sofa, which features individual components that can be configured in a variety of ways. At the very core of Isole is a deep sense of comfort and warmth, manifested in its soft and welcoming aesthetic, while the addition of side tables further contribute to its functionality.
BOB, a sofa system by designers Stefan Borselius and Thomas Bernstrand, is a versatile and easy-to-understand seating solution with a soft and clean appearance. It consists of five unique modules that can be arranged in practically endless variations to adapt to any space. BOB's artistic style is visually alluring, with rounded curved corners and a sleek low or high back profile and the modules can be combined to create or transform into a sofa, bench, ottoman, or lounge chair. In addition, it offers power outlets, removable side tables, and a range of custom capabilities to create an all-day workstation—all these functional and stylistic options make the BOB system the perfect solution as an all-in-one seating system for various office scenarios.
With a minimalist and sleek design, Francesco Rota's Plus modular sofa boasts a captivating blend of soft and geometric shapes that seamlessly blend together. Its sturdy internal frame and plush polyurethane foam core are wrapped in an array of differently colored high-quality fabrics and leathers, making it easily fit into any interior, in a reception area as a statement piece, creating a visually pleasing environment for visitors, in a private office for a more casual meeting space, or a common area, creating a comfortable place for employees to relax and socialize.
The Summit furniture collection is a testament to the power of human interaction, born from a design forum hosted by +Halle in 2019. Norwegian architecture and design practice Snøhetta sought to promote sharing and collaboration by creating a versatile and dynamic building block system that encourages engagement and playfulness. Inspired by the importance of intimacy in fostering meaningful connections, the Summit modules form a cushioned mountain range, featuring a soft, organic surface that invites exploration. The six distinct modules can be combined in endless configurations, creating a multi-dimensional interior landscape that sparks curiosity and ignites the imagination.
