AIRBERG | Sofa
Airberg by Jean-Marie Massaud is an innovative piece of furniture that breaks with conventions. Airberg is one of the first results that come out of the work at Offecct Lab, a strategic initiative designed to concentrate Offecct’s efforts in the development of new solutions and new products. Airberg is not ready for production yet, but should be seen as a result of an ongoing R&D-process where Offecct and Jean-Marie Massaud dared to develop a piece of seating furniture for the meeting places of the future. The inspiration behind the form of Airberg is a combination of a comfortable, inviting piece of seating furniture and an iceberg filled with vacuum. The furniture’s abstract form is light in its expression and Airberg is contemporary both in its design and in the technique used. Airberg consists of a structural case which gives the impression of being filled with a vacuum, but is in reality filled with a flexible padding material. The unique craftsmanship used in the production of Airberg makes it possible to create a deconstructed piece of furniture that is more defined in its asymmetry. Jean-Marie Massaud has created a piece of furniture that is comfortable, sustainable and competent, making it highly contemporary.
