Comfortable and relaxing upholstered furniture’s no longer exclusive to lounges but now features in offices everywhere too.

In the past, upholstered chairs and benches with backrests were limited to foyers and waiting areas, but nowadays they’re encountered in co-working spaces, areas in the middle of rooms, open-plan offices or company restaurants. Wilkhahn’s new Insit upholstered furniture range (design: Wolfgang C.R. Mezger) allows the creation of a variety of different settings with different moods, which, on the one hand, are places to withdraw to for peace and quiet and, on the other hand, encourage interaction and collaboration. What’s more, it can be used to divide spaces up into zones and improve acoustics.

Due to its delicate base frame, Insit almost appears to float over the floor and makes a cleaner’s job easier too. Photo: Wilkhahn
