“The working environment is no longer about meeting rooms, operative chairs and desks,” says Sebastian Wrong, design director of Established&Sons. “The home has become an office, and the office has become a home.”
The boundaries get blurred between work and the domestic habitat. And the London-based brand reacts with three versatile developments, refined, comfortable furnishings that are also equipped with the right technology and ergonomic design to make work possible. “The standards and expectations are getting higher when it comes to workspaces,” Wrong continues. “Companies and private individuals want to have a universal space with a high level of design integrity that includes comfort, flexibility, informality and functional quality.”
Among the new offerings, Grid by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec is a layout to personalize with modular upholstered seating, shelves, tables and screens, items that can be combined in different ways to create a playful, multifunctional setting for informal meetings, presentations, encounters, or just a bit of relaxation and entertainment. A grid can come in different colors and finishes, and also be covered with sound-absorbing fabric to ensure privacy and concentration.
Konstantin Grcic contributes two products that promise to last forever, namely the Beam table, in a standard height of 74 centimeters or a 110 cm version for working on foot, with wheels for easy movement and a top in oak, laminate or Fenix, a high-performance material that stands up to heat and scratching. The other product is the KD table, a combination of industrial components and crafted steel parts.
Finally the Lucio Lounge designed by Sebastian Wrong is a seat that welcomes the body, light and easy to move, in steel tubing with fabric inspired by the paintings of Lucio Fontana: the cuts in the fabric allow the covering to closely wrap the frame and the structure of the seat, while providing an unexpected visual contrast.
