Offecct launches the easy chair PAL specifically designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune for Stockholm’s new luxury hotel, the Nobis Hotel.
The Nobis Hotel is a new independent contemporary first class hotel situated in the heart of Stockholm. The interiors of Nobis Hotel were created in collaboration with world renowned, award-winning Swedish design studio Claesson Koivisto Rune.
The hotel’s 201 rooms are of varying sizes and one of the challenges for Claesson Koivisto Rune and Offecct was to develop an easy chair that would fit well in the larger as well as in the smaller rooms.
Translating the idea into reality was a demanding task for both Claesson Koivisto Rune and Offecct, and after some intense research and development the easy chair Pal is now being launched, combining two chairs in one in a cunning way.
Depending on where the legs are mounted Pal can either be a larger and lower chair with a lounge character, or a smaller chair with a higher backrest. The same pair of legs is used for both variants.
This option has been achieved through a carefully developed seat that can be turned in two directions. The larger lower variant is characterized by some sharp edges. The smaller and higher version of Pal is characterized by a more rounded radius.
The inspiration behind the name Pal simply comes from the English word for a friend – or a pal. Pal has also got a decorative element in a seam that goes all around the edge and which can be produced in different colors.
