No matter if you are in a meeting room or a living room, there is no need for the environment to suit only one type of activity. Today’s technology has made that possible. We wanted to create a sofa that gives you the feeling of being virtually anywhere, a center of comfort, with all the appliances you might need for work, informal meetings, and some casual time. Offecct’s sofa system Meet is designed solely for this purpose. It’s soft seating which rests on a sturdy platform is the result of the first collaboration between the Milan based design studio Fattorini+Rizzini+Partners and Offecct.
”When we work on projects aimed at the environment between office and residential space, we always raise our gaze to look at the surroundings. We don’t want to see only the product. We want to see and feel how this product will actually work in a space so it can be of full service to the people who will use it”, says Robin Rizzini.
”We wanted to design Meet so that its functions feature Offecct’s main areas, the sustainability aspect and the sound absorbing qualities of their products, the importance to inject life through plants in indoor environments and Offecct’s craftsmanship in working with wood and fabrics”, continues Rizzini.
”It has been a pleasure to work on Meet with Fattorini+Rizzini+Partners, they are masters at designing system furniture. Our very first meeting during Salone del Mobile in 2013 quickly turned into a fascinating philosophical discussion about what informal meetings mean, and from there Fattorini+Rizzini+Partners have carried out this project perfectly. They have come through with a sofa that serves the meeting and work aspect in a very generous way”, says Anders Englund, Design Manager at Offecct.
