  • Offecct awarded with Sustainability project of the year

    form-award-sff-kurt-tingdal-luca-nichetto-anders-englund-phoenix-offecct

    The chair Phoenix, designed for Offecct by Luca Nichetto, has won Form magazine’s new design award “Sustainability project of the year” during Stockholm Furniture Fair.

    − Phoenix is a result of our Lifecircle philosophy and is designed to have a long, flexible and sustainable lifecycle, says Anders Englund, Design Manager of Offecct.

    The Lifecircle philosophy is the essence of everything Offecct does and is about connecting contemporary design with sustainability and to develop innovative design on the planet's conditions.

    - We can own the design and function, but the material we borrow from nature. We consider receiving the Form Award “Sustainability project of the year” proves that our philosophy works, says Anders Englund.

    Phoenix has been developed in close cooperation between Offecct and Luca Nichetto. The frame is made of recycled aluminum, the wooden parts can easily be exchanged and the flexibility when it comes to color and material is great. The idea is that the entire product, not just the material, can be reused time and time again.

    − I think Phoenix is a good “manifest product” that illustrates the sustainable philosophy, which I share with Offecct. To me the chair is a perfect example of what design is all about – cooperating with the industry, says Luca Nichetto.

    Form Award is the design and architecture Magazine Form’s new award and is awarded to five different categories during Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair.

    The motivation of this year’s sustainability project says:

    The chair Phoenix, named after the mythical creature that is resurrected in eternity, is not only a sleek and intelligent design object. It is also a symbolic product for Offecct, one of the most important pioneers in the industry in terms of sustainability and circular thinking.

  • Soundwave® Wicker: Gert Wingårdh & Erik Wikerstål

    soundwave-wicker-gert-wingardh-erik-wikerstal-offecct

    Soundwave® Wicker, the prized and celebrated architects Gert Wingårdh and Erik Wikerstål have given the acoustic panel its perfect expression. With its woven surface, Wicker gives an industrial product with supreme acoustic qualities a touch of traditional crafts.

    The origin of Wicker is a material with an expression and a set of characteristics which seems to be exact opposite of those of an acoustic panel: concrete. As architects of the ongoing renovation of Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, Gert Wingårdh and Erik Wikerstål not only have the responsibility to make sure that the prestigious 19th century building gets a climate that the art treasures will feel comfortable in, they also had to design an extension with a less prominent but very important function – the cargo hold through which the masterpieces for the exhibitions are taken in to the museum.

    Gert Wingårdh has won the prestigious design award Kasper Sahlin-prize, 5 times.

  • Soundwave® Ceramic: Thomas Sandell

    soundwave-ceramic-thomas-sandell-offecct

    In Thomas Sandell’s new acoustic panel Soundwave® Ceramic, architecture and design comes together. With his exceptional knowledge of the details required to create a qualitative interior, Sandell has designed an acoustic panel that is more architecture than design and that is as pleasing for the eyes and ears as it is lean on the environment.

    The inspiration for Ceramic are tiles, a product of many qualities even though the contribution to a good acoustic environment is not one of them. When Thomas Sandell now interprets the architectural qualities of ceramic tiles to design, it is with the help of recycled polyester fibre, an environmentally friendly material whose qualities Offecct has successfully developed during many years in its collection Soundwave®.

    ”When working on Ceramic, I have tried to think more like an architect than a designer”, says Thomas Sandell.

    Monica Förster’s new chair, Bike, has a leather seat that will only grow more beautiful with age. She took inspiration from the world of cycling and sport, where each and every detail matters and is crucial to the overall result. Note, for example, how the chair is equally attractive from all angles, including from behind.

    Monica Förster’s Cloud, which she also designed for Offecct, was cited as Coolest Invention by Time Magazine.

    High-tech and poetry – this is how Monica Förster describes her new chair Sheer. It was developed to be as light as possible, both as a challenge from the perspective of working environment, and also as a driver in the creative focus. The result is a technically advanced chair that also manages to feel airy and almost dreamlike. 

    Monica Förster’s Cloud, which she also designed for Offecct, was cited Coolest Invention by Time Magazine.

  • Wind divider and Wind table: Jin Kuramoto

    wind-jin-kuramoto-offecct-10324

    Jin Kuramoto sees the Wind room divider as a tribute to nature, a forest of organic forms that also controls the acoustics. The product has been developed in Offecct Lab, and in 2016 it was tested in various public environments with excellent results. The enthusiastic response led Kuramoto to design a side table with the same characteristic style. The divider and table work equally well together or independently. 

    Jin Kuramoto designs everything from furniture to home electronics.
