A study in duality by London-based studio Doshi Levien, Shaal combines residential comfort with the flexibility of modularity, and a sense of weightlessness with generous volumes. Six core elements can create angular or linear two- or three-seat compositions, each framed in a rigid panel that supports the supple cushions. A range of leathers and textiles is offered for the hard and soft segments; the removable upholstery can be replaced to extend the life of the sofa, and all components are recyclable.
Like a well-tailored suit, Prescott can be customized to perfectly fit its surroundings. The modules are built in 76.2-centimetre increments and include armless, right- or left-armed, high-backed (with a built-in shelf) and corner units, as well as ottomans and coffee tables, which can form dynamic linear landscapes. Unifying bands along the bases — with square metal or cylindrical wooden feet — can be left exposed or upholstered in matching fabric for a seamless appearance.
Toronto industrial design studio Fig40 devised Brig to offer complete configuration freedom. Revolving around a sleek exposed plywood plinth, its volumes can be arranged into lounge chairs, benches, sofas and more. Two back heights cater to different privacy needs, and tables, planters and shelving can be integrated into the assembly. Power outlets are also available, as are a number of upholstery and finish options.
Riffing on the undulating form of corrugated facades, Swedish designer Anton Björsing used vertical wood rods to frame the light grey or anthracite felt-upholstered backs and sides of his Ondulé collection. Two back heights are available for the two- and three-seater versions, which can be arranged with a low-back armchair and high-back one-and-a-half-seat settee. The oak or ash wood can be clear lacquered, white glazed or stained in 11 finishes (ash only), while a pop-up table (for the two- and three-seaters) and power outlets enhance the series’s functionality.
