Scandinavian design studio based in London, cate&nelson, and Offecct, a Sweden-based contemporary furniture manufacturer teamed up to develop their first collection, Netframe, which has been exhibited at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2013, on 5-9 February. With a simple yet very attractive, modern design inspired by a traditional hammock, it consists of a sofa and an easy chair suitable for both public and private environments.
When creating this seating system, the designer’s purpose was to make very comfortable furniture pieces with extremely low impact on the environment, while using and wasting as little material as possible. So, Neframe distinguishes not only by original and stylish design that showcases slim legs and a minimalist shell, but also by an intelligent use of few materials and by a sustainable approach reflected in both companies’ design philosophy. The details make it look particularly catchy and fun. The semi-transparent space fabric is wrapped around the structure and held in place by the cushions, which are very interestingly integrated in the structure’s oval shape. Take a look!
