ophelis sum is a new modular seating system for configuring islands within a room.
The product concept is based on three core elements: base, partition and cushion. These can be combined in an additive and modular fashion. This easily enables a wide variety of seating to be configured – from stools and benches to armchairs, sofas and chaise longues. Partitions with different heights determine the degree of privacy. Depending on the extent of retreat and discretion required, partitions can be configured as an L-shape or a U-shape.
Three different tables serve as bridges, go-betweens and add-ons. In combination, these items of furniture create micro architectural islands in the room. Of course, ophelis sum offers integrated power supply options.
Numerous configurations: Seven frame colours plus extensive collection of fabrics
The combination of three core elements in seven frame colours with a wide choice of materials creates a wealth of possible combinations. The ophelis sum concept is clear, modular and additive. The design creates lightness and highlights how flexible the layout possibilities are. Seating can be arranged single-sided, facing one another or as L-shaped, T-shaped or X-shaped layouts.
The scope of possible applications ranges from creating islands in the office to furnishing communal areas and domestic living space. ophelis sum is perfect for the modern office, lobby, lounge and foyer. It provides seating in colleges, libraries and museums. It is a new favourite spot in your own living room.
