For Brunner, the young Berlin based design studio osko+deichmann developed plot, a modular seating ensemble that shapes rooms – inspiring various sitting positions and effortlessly aligning with office areas, foyers or lounges like a natural “loungescape”. Based on a square basic module, the utilization concept accommodates those who look not only to sit, but to lean back, move, exchange and communicate in a relaxed environment. The concept of plot offers adaptable sitting at three levels, and showcases an entirely new interpretation of arm and back rests.
“How do we sit when we are on the go? Do we wait or do we work? Do we meet up and talk to each other? Or do we relax?” These questions lead osko+deichmann to the surprisingly unconventional design of plot. Based on the square basic module, six combinations of sitting and rest surfaces can be implemented. The middle level – the arm rest – was conceptualised to be highly flexible, and can be repositioned without tools. The top sitting level – the back rest – is fixed due to static reasons, and is permanently connected to the base with powder-coated diagonal bars. Based on this concept, a large variety of settings can be formed – starting with a single module or a classic couch, to linear alignments and through to structures around corners or free standing and space-consuming structures that can be expanded in all directions. This concept suits compact as well as very spacious floor plans.
For those places where people carry bags and luggage, PLOT offers unconventional modular varieties with storage options. Larger seating ensembles can be extended with space-defining add-ons – storage baskets, tables, plant containers and folding screens – separating the room into different communication areas. The use of the individual levels is open and flexible: they offer generous sitting space and options to place laptops, trays and further utensils.
