Cumulus Sofa Range

Bryony Hancock
Nottingham Trent University

Cumulus is a flexible sofa range for modern offices and co-working spaces, consisting of a variety of backrests, tables and power adaptations.

Bryony: ‘Inspired by my experience as a freelance journalist working in unfamiliar offices, I wanted to bring a playful softness to work spaces. Cumulus’ floating shapes are derived from pebbles, clouds and hills, inviting a relaxed work environment.

The system has a standard base, off of which there are six points for optional extensions. A variety of backrest, table and power modules slot into these extensions, creating numerous combinations that suit the client’s needs. By placing backrests on either side of the 165˚ seat angle, people are either directed towards each other, or away. This facilitates both collaborative and solitary working.

The seating area is split by a dividing seam, highlighted by a contrast double top stitch. This visual boundary defines personal territories that help users feel comfortable within their own space. Cumulus’ rounded end is an invite to perch, reflecting hot-desking trends and the current gig economy.’

Lucy

Nina Naversnik
Birmingham City University

Nina: ‘Lucy came to be because I wasn’t sure who I was. The aim of the project was to discover who I was as an emerging designer, what my philosophy and design language are. The idea of exploring metal inspired me so I followed my joy and came across an intriguing shape, which reminded me of a bright and curious human being. I named it Lucy and let her guide me further. The more time that I spent with this character, the more I learned about her. Lucy was a light. Not the kind of light that outshines all the others with her brightness. Her demeanour isn’t very loud either, however, there is something about her that makes you wonder. A sense of calmness and ease expressed through the use of 3D printing and a minimal use of materials make it a valuable addition to any home.’

Willow Chair

Peter Kovacs
Kingston University

An experimental chair concept created by adopting and adapting traditional Sussex trug making techniques. The design leverages centuries old craft skills, reclaimed materials and contemporary production methods to preserve the qualities and disappearing craft ethos.

Peter: ‘This Willow Chair was born in the hope that it will raise awareness of England’s endangered heritage crafts by providing an alternative way of preserving the processes and material knowledge, without being restricted to the confines of a heritage site. I participated in a trug making course in Sussex and learned about this craft which dates back to the 1600’s. I set out to create this chair adopting these techniques and materials to the modern manufacturing practices, meanwhile creating a clear link to the craft and its end product, the Sussex Trug.’
