We often underestimate the importance of a great chair. When in reality we really shouldn’t. We spend the majority of our day sitting on chairs, whether we’re working in our home office, enjoying a meal, or simply sitting and reading a book for leisure! Hence, this piece of furniture needs to be not only comfortable but ergonomic, and aesthetic as well. And designers Stefan Borselius and Thomas Bernstrand designed a rather plush and cozy chair cubicle called BOB Solo for the Swedish furniture brand Blå Station.
Designers: Stefan Borselius and Thomas Bernstrand for Blå Station
Designed by Stefan Borselius and Thomas Bernstrand for Blå Station, the BOB Solo is a chair-cum-cubicle that is included in Blå Station’s BOB line. The cush chair cubicle features two padded screens that have been attached to the sides of the seat. Meant to be a comfy little pod, the chair is designed to be a “room in the room”, and a “nook for privacy”, that allows users to sit and work in peace with an air of privacy around them.
The BOB Solo has also been outfitted with an oak tabletop that you can use to work on your laptop and hold books and documents. Small shelves, coat hooks, and a foldable steel table have been included as well. It also includes a tiny little power light that emits enough light to help you work and carry out other activities. The power light is called the BOB Light Mini. Another interesting feature is the wheels on the feet of the cubicle which implies that the workspace is portable, and can be moved from one location to another. This also helps to move the cubicle from one room to another, especially when guests are coming over, and you don’t want a room to seem too cluttered.
The cubicle has also been equipped with a power bank which provides power to electronic devices, so you can charge your work gadgets without having to leave the cubicle. The Bob Solo is a great addition to your home office, or living room, functioning as a nifty spot to work in or read your favorite book, and chill.
