Berlin-based design group osko+deichmann recently released Plot, a padded, modular seating system for the contract market. Designed for Brunner, Plot is a versatile, customizable and easy to adjust lounge system “inspired by cascaded formations in nature.” Intended for use in hotels, lobbies and airports, the system is made up of add-on units that come in three height levels – low, medium and high. The base level acts as a low-lying side table to hold purses, drinks, etc. The medium level cushions act as seats and can be raised to the next highest level to form seat backs, arm rests and area dividers. The color-blocked units make this system much more attractive than your average contract commercial seating, too. Watch this short video to see how Plot can grow or shrink to fit your space.
How do we sit down while we’re travelling? 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 provides a contemporary response to these questions. Building on a square base module with variable seating surfaces at three levels, plot fully reinterprets the roles of arm-rests and back-rests.
Every person uses furniture in their own unique way. While sitting down, people change their posture and furniture serves a different purpose for each of us – for some it offers a spot to rest or communicate while for others it provides a temporary office space or an oasis of tranquillity. With its multilevel seating, plot allows different seating positions and encourages informal communication. plot, the modular loungescape invites people to return and interpret seating in a new way.
