Stockholm-based design studio Note wanted to do away with “dull and mundane” office seating and instead offer an opportunity to make a statement. The result of this thinking is the Bau modular seating system for Lammhults.
Eschewing conventional expectations, Bau is an “anti-ordinary design” defined by its super-soft, low-slung and somewhat curious form.
The expressive Bau has a relaxed personality and with its rounded corners resemblances a folded, thickly padded cushion. The system is comprised of six modular units – Easy Chair Straight, Easy Chair Closed, Easy Chair Open, Pouf Straight, Pouf Closed and Pouf Open – each of which can be used as standalone lounge chairs or linked together to create winding and meandering lengths.
Bau’s inviting design would be as suitable for a private residence as it is for lounge setups in contract and workspace settings. Made with a fibre board interior wrapped in a high-resilient polyurethane foam (with adjustable glides) the modules can also be linked together with powder-coated sheet metal tabletop surface. Multiple upholstery fabric options are available.
