Amsterdam based designer Khodi Feiz will present a new armchair for Swedish manufacturer Offecct at the coming Stockholm Furniture Fair.

As you can see from the post about the armchair from Claesson Koivisto Rune the other day there is a simultaneous nature of the two projects. Khodi Feiz is introducing a table connected to the chair as well, however his version is foldable and thus somewhat more versatile. Sometimes some ideas and typologies are in the air.

Here are som words from Khodi Feiz about Moment for Offecct:

Observing those “moments” which we engage in while seated was the key inspiration for this project. Noticing that we rarely “just sit”, we started to reflect on all the activities we do while sitting: all the moments that we read, we drink a cup of coffee, we work, we engage in conversation… ‘Moment’ was born out of these situations.

Design development

We believe that this multi-dimensionality requires new solutions that are more reflective of our activities, just as the old wooden school chair with an integrated tablet in the context of the classroom. We wanted to create a chair, which is a hybrid, an integral piece composed of two intertwined functionalities that are seamlessly merged into one. And in turn, reflects our daily activities in larger settings such as lounges, receptions, collaborative spaces and offices, and even perhaps in your home when you’re reading the morning paper while enjoying your coffee or working on your laptop.

Protoype of the Moment chair for Offecct

The design is based on a generous flowing cup shape, supporting your body, which gently transforms into a small articulating table opening up for a surface for your coffee and closing in front of you when you want to work. This opening and closing gesture also reinforces the notion of private and public, almost suggesting to others that you are available for conversation or you are busy with work, a social gauge, if you will.

Cold-foam Moulded and upholstered in one integral structure and complimented by an articulating table in powder coated aluminium and available in a variety of feet configurations and finishes, the Moment is a seamless fit into Offecct’s conscientious and progressive range of furniture.
