Meet, a sofa system by Fattorini+Rizzini+Partners
We wanted to create a sofa that gives you the feeling of being virtually anywhere, a center of comfort, with all the appliances you might need for work, informal meetings and some casual time. Offecct’s new sofa system MEET is designed solely for this purpose. Its soft seating which rests on a sturdy platform is the result of the first collaboration between the Milan based design studio Fattorini+Rizzini+Partners and Offecct.
– We wanted to design Meet so that its functions feature Offecct’s main areas, the sustainability aspect and the sound absorbing qualities of their products, the importance to inject life through plants in indoor environments and Offecct’s craftsmanship in working with wood and fabrics, continues Robin Rizzini.
The concept of Meet was previewed at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in 2014 and received an overwhelming response for the way it introduces a new type of informal sofa for meeting places. The soft and generous seating rests on a platform which offers pots of greenery, tables for work appliances and built in electric sockets. To offer more privacy and the possibility to build rooms within rooms, Meet can now also be supplemented with screens that easily can be attached to the back of the sofa.
– When we work on projects aimed at the environment between office and residential space, we always raise our gaze to look at the surroundings. We don’t want to see only the product. We want to see and feel how this product will actually work in a space so it can be of full service to the people who will use it, explains Robin Rizzini.
