M Moser reveals EY's new 'hospitality style' workplace
M Moser Associates creates a community-focused workplace designed for interaction.
A versatile new seating range blurs the boundaries between workplace, hospitality and residential design.
With boundaries between workplace, hospitality, and residential environments more blurred than ever before, Gresham has taken elements associated with each to design a one and two-person seating collection with a Scandinavian twist.
“For the Monoko collection, we were very much inspired by bringing the comfort of domestic spaces into commercial environments”, explains designer Steven Parkinson. “The aim was to create a range of one and two person seaters that would look equally as at home in a workplace, as they would in the lobby of a high-end hotel. Plus be as comfortable as the furniture you’d choose for your own house or apartment. As we return to both work and leisure spaces, we feel there are elements of the home that should be retained: comfort being top of the list.”
Available as either a single, or double seater, with frame in a natural or dark wood finish, plus bespoke choice of fabrics – from seventies’ inspired mustard to pared back charcoal grey – Monoko’s versatile style offers comfort to those seeking anything from contemplative quiet to a collaborative chat.
“The aesthetic is led by Scandinavian simplicity, with the sleek wooden frame providing a strong geometric statement that encases the chosen fabric for the chair within,” Parkinson continues. “The resulting design can be as minimalist, or as maximalist, as desired. The beauty of Monoko is in its ability to flex for its surroundings, all the while providing a comfortable baseline as standard.”
