Avignon by Christophe Pillet
– a sofa and an easy chair that combine the best of two worlds.
After several successful collaborations between French designer Christophe Pillet and Offecct, the new sofa and easy chair Avignon offer missing pieces in an ongoing effort to map out the borderland between the domestic sphere and the contract world.
The landscape laid out in front of us in the public realm is changing and becoming more and more like that of our homes. Activity based offices and better possibilities to work from home have drawn these two separate worlds closer together.
Avignon, the new sofa and easy chair by renowned designer Christophe Pillet, fits seamlessly into this new domestic landscape. After all, our demands for durability and our expectations on comfort and quality of material are the same – no matter where we use our furniture.
”I don’t think there should be any difference between home and contract furniture, it’s just that you are sitting in one context which is more public than the other. Sitting on a cushion regardless of where you are, should still offer you the same experience and comfort”, says designer Christophe Pillet.
Avignon, are characterised by the familiar design language that Christophe Pillet is known and praised for: no unnecessary frills and a relaxed elegance matched by pleasant comfort.
”Avignon not only brings out and combines the best of two worlds, it is also a play between hard and soft. The sofa and easy chair are defined by a thin metal case outlining an inside which is both inviting and soft”, explains Anders Englund design manager of Offecct.
