Press release -
New platform sofa by Lucy Kurrein for Offecct.
London based Lucy Kurrein is one of the new designers in Offecct's news collection 2018. Her contribution is an ingenious sofa system for both rest and work. She is pleased with what she has accomplished and the furniture carries her first name.
– Lucy is a modular sofa system based on individual seats – something that greatly facilitates the furnishing of a lobby, for example, says Lucy Kurrein. The idea was a soft and inviting piece of furniture, so much of the work involved ensuring comfort and shape permanence.
Lucy is a platform sofa designed for social soft meetings. Lucy offers high comfort and several additional functions as hanger for the coat and movable table tops for the coffee or the lap top.
Both the designer and Offecct believe that Lucy will gain popularity in environments other than public:
– We people live in the present and in real time and work and rest where we are now. Lucy by Lucy Kurrein captures that trend, while the sofa is functional, says Offecct's Design Manager Anders Englund.
