  • Dune by Front

    dune-ottomans-front-offecct-12109

    Dune, designed by pioneering Swedish design studio Front for Offecct, offers an exciting new response to the constantly changing needs of our work places and public spaces. Dune has been developed for the spheres where the need for informal meetings intersects with the demand for relaxed seating.

    ”Dune is so airy it almost appears to levitate”, says designer Anna Lindgren, one of the members of Front. ”We’re really satisfied with the lightness of Dune. This is, after all, a large piece of furniture that easily can seat up to eight people”.

    Despite being so delicate, Dune stands firmly on the ground. Its legs not only support the asymmetrical seat, they also rise above it to hold four table tops that are all equipped with the latest generation usb-sockets.

  • Avignon sofa and easy chair by Christophe Pillet

    The landscape laid out in front of us in the public realm is changing and becoming more and more like that of our homes. Activity based offices and better possibilities to work from home have drawn these two separate worlds closer together. Avignon, the new sofa and easy chair by renowned designer Christophe Pillet, fits seamlessly into this new domestic landscape. After all, our demands for durability and our expectations on comfort and quality of material are the same – no matter where we use our furniture.

    ”I don’t think there should be any difference between home and contract furniture, it’s just that you are sitting in one context which is more public than the other. Sitting on a cushion regardless of where you are, should still offer you the same experience and comfort”, says designer Christophe Pillet.

  • 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.
