We often underestimate the importance of great office furniture! When in reality we really shouldn’t. We spend the majority of our day sitting on our office chairs or typing away on our desks whether we’re working in our home office or a corporate one. Hence, these pieces of furniture need to be not only comfortable but ergonomic, and aesthetic as well. And one such furniture design I recently came across for our modern-day office spaces is the Hybe seating collection.
Designer: Form Us With Love for EFG
Designed by industrial design studio Form Us With Love for furniture manufacturer EFG, the Hybe seating collection is a dynamic and mobile seating collection, that is quite versatile and unique. The brand says that the seating collection, is in fact, defined by ‘versatility’. The collection was designed to be utilized for both professional and educational environments.
“The [furniture] family’s primary characteristic is versatility, as it provides seating areas and meeting spaces that meet your needs and assignments at any given moment,” said EFG. The furniture collection includes single to double-seated chairs and enclosed booths. They’ve all been equipped with wheels, to create seating solutions that are both mobile and flexible. The singe-seat versions have been amped with wooden armrests, although they come without as well. Partition screens can be attached to the single and double-seated chairs, to transform them into sound-blocking booths, that function as private and secluded spaces to work in. The chairs come with castors or swivel bases.
“In recent years, we’ve seen significant changes in working environments, and tomorrow’s workplace will be even more versatile. A single piece of furniture will have to do more than one thing, and Hybe is the perfect hybrid for relaxation and work. You can work in it, hold a meeting or take a phone call,” said Form Us With Love co-founder John Löfgren. The seating collection features tubular steel chair legs which the brand defines as “a classic Scandinavian design with a soft, playful twist”. Wooden accents and soft delicate upholstery in a wide range of colors mark the various chairs. All the individual elements of the Hybe collection can be replaced and recycled over time.
