SOUFFLÉ by Cecilie Manz
“The concept originates in a vision for the new office environment, which is more mobile; where meetings are held in more informal settings. My own vision for the group is that of rocks in the archipelago, where you jump from stone to stone. The table is the hub around which the stools gather. The shapes are organic and individual, inspired by nature, not circular but a bit `squeezed´. An important element is the tactile contrast between tough textile coating in base and the soft `whipped cream´ cushion on the top, a cutting edge mix of foam and natural feathers, which posed an interesting technical challenge. This group will be nice in a lobby, for example, but with its soft, pleasant seating, it is also a crossover concept which will fit well in homes. My inspiration from nature, the Scandinavian heritage and the organic colour scale will be nicely emphasised if customers choose Scandinavian natural stone or wood as a table surface, as I recommend.”
