Dezeen Showroom: Danish designers Christina Strand and Niels Hvass have created a modular sofa system for workplace furniture brand Narbutas that fosters connectivity in modern offices.
Called Soft Rock, the seating is characterised by its blocky silhouette and rounded corners, which were informed by the way that waves wash over rocks and smoothen their edges.
The low-lying sofa was created in response to the shift away from traditional office settings and towards more flexible work environments.
“The demand for more casual, relaxed working spaces is increasing and at the same time, the need for constant motion,” explained Hvass and Strand.
Soft Rock’s modular design allows it to be rearranged and adapted to different needs, creating spaces for focused work, rest, training or meetings.
Multiple seating units can be combined into sprawling configurations to accommodate larger groups.
Additional features include integrated power sockets and fast-charging USB ports embedded into the armrests and fabric-covered dividers that aid privacy and reduce noise as well as helping to maintain social distancing.
Soft Rock modules come in a range of different sizes and shapes, including options with or without backrests and with a straight or curved silhouette.
