SOON AT THE REFUGIUM :: OSKO + DEICHMANN: PLOT
Every person uses furniture in his own unique way. While sitting down, the furniture serves a different purpose for each one of us. For some it offers a spot to communicate while for others it provides a temporary office space or an oasis of tranquility and isolation.
How do we sit down while we’re on the move? Do we wait or do we work? Do we meet other people and communicate? Do we take a time-out and relax? How private do we want to be in public spaces? Plot from Berlin-based designer duo osko+deichmann tried to provide a contemporary response to these questions. Building on a square base module with variable seating surfaces at three levels, it fully reinterprets the roles of arm-rests and back-rests, offering a versatile seating solution for many purposes. Three cushioned surfaces can be used in various ways – as a backrest, table, couch, chair or tablet on which different items can be placed. It offers optional tablets for use in areas where people carry bags and other items, while larger seating landscapes with different communication areas can be created using add-ons. The modules themselves can be intermingled to accommodate different sitting postures and other usages, while the tops distinguish themselves in color and material from the sides, so that with numerous combinations of colors and modules, it can be adapted to many different types of spaces. osko + deichmann, formerly wunschforscher, are
