Cumulus Sofa Range
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.’
