#002 WorkSofaPROOF: Design Studio Makkink & Bey
Meeting/ Visitor Chairs.
The idea for the WorkSofa grew out of our commitment to stimulate ‘genuine’ communication. We believe that by sitting naturally we can influence people’s approach to one another. After intensive research into the activity of sitting and the nature of maximizing social activity Studio Makkink & Bey have come across many different possibilities for creating a new furniture piece.
As a result of these, the idea of modularity and flexibility became the primary focus in creating the WorkSofa — essential ingredients when it comes to honouring the needs of users. In every instance, the different characteristics of the WorkSofa offer many new possibilities and configurations in which stylish pieces of the puzzle allow for endless varieties of communication to occur. From informal to intimate, the modular WorkSofa has proven itself as an ideal setting for public meetings, presentations, brainstorm sessions and group work — or even a place to have a meeting with oneself. As the sofa changes, new ways of being social are revealed, depending on whihc height and layout suits your meeting.
