HBF’s Triscape collection and Asa side seating hit the mark at NeoCon, and here’s why.
July 31st, 2014
Designed by Todd Bracher, Triscape’s lounge seating, occasional tables and pouf come together to meet the exacting demands of today’s workplace.
With its triangular forms inspired by tessellations, the Triscape collection is conceived specifically for collaborative open-plan spaces that demand a balance of functionality, community engagement and acoustical control.
For one, Triscape offers measured Sabin sound absorption, which is critical in today’s open-plan workspaces. It also offers unlimited configurations, offering lounge seating with a small work surface or, alternatively, as a larger work surface with a seat pad.
In addition, the lounge seating, occasional tables and pouf can be mixed and matched to create a custom environment precisely fitted to the space, the needs of users and a variety of work tasks.
Ideal for free-form collaborative workspaces, as well as casual public and reception areas, the Triscape collection has received the Gold award in the Lounge Furniture Collection category, while the Triscape table has won a Gold award for Occasional Tables.
The new Asa side chair exudes a sense of fluidity and motion, while providing maximum comfort and performance within even the smallest, most efficient office footprints.
Also designed by Todd Bracher, Asa conforms to the contours of the body and provides gentle support, while its restrained lines easily achieve a quiet harmony with the design of interior spaces.
Asa is an eco-conscious product that is made using minimal materials. And in the workplace, the design makes a strong, solo statement – as a single chair or in a grouping. It also effortlessly pairs with HBF’s existing Asa Lounge and Occasional Tables series for a cohesive design flow within the space.
