Not without my quilt

Dune by Front
– a new seating typology sweeps into the furniture landscape.
Dune, designed by pioneering Swedish design studio Front for Offecct, offers an exciting new response to the constantly changing needs of our work places and public spaces. Dune has been developed for the spheres where the need for informal meetings intersects with the demand for relaxed seating.
”Dune is so airy it almost appears to levitate”, says designer Anna Lindgren, one of the members of Front. ”We’re really satisfied with the lightness of Dune. This is, after all, a large piece of furniture that easily can seat up to eight people”.
Despite being so delicate, Dune stands firmly on the ground. Its legs not only support the asymmetrical seat, they also rise above it to hold four table tops that are all equipped with the latest generation usb-sockets.
”Dune is an oasis that comes to life when it is used”, says Anders Englund, design manager at Offecct answering his own rhetorical question what this new furniture typology from Offecct Lab is. In Offecct Lab designers collaborate with Offecct to research new materials, products and an aesthetic that can meet the demands on a segment of the furniture market that is undergoing constant change. This work is a natural and important part of our Lifecircle philosophy.
Dune is the long awaited continuation of a collaboration between Front and Offecct that began with Green Pedestals, which were launched in 2011.
