Softseating from Molo design

April 26th, 2011 by retail design blog

The inspiration for softseating comes from a desire for flexible and spontaneous space making. softseating’s magnetic ends allow it to connect to itself forming a cylindrical stool or low table. Elements of the same size can also connect to one another to form long winding benches, providing endless seating topographies. Made from a single material, the beauty of these pieces sits between the representative and the abstract, creatively interchanging with one another. Designed for long term use, over time the surface texture of softseating’s paper edges soften into a pleasing natural patina.

Materials:

Kraft paper

A stiff robust unbleached paper, it is 100% recyclable and made from 50% recycled fibre. It is available in a natural warm earthy brown and a dyed bamboo charcoal black.
kraft paper elements are fire retardant. Fire rating documentation is available upon request.

Textile

A non-woven polyethylene material, trade name Tyvek©, it is 100% recyclable and made from 5 – 15% recycled content. Its lightweight paper look and feel is tear, UV and water resistant, making it durable to handle and maintain. textile softseating is available in translucent white and opaque black.
The textile material has a “class A” flame spread in North America. Documentation is available on request.
