Airberg by Jean Marie-Massaud for Offecct
French designer Jean Marie-Massaud has created the Airberg seating unit for Offecct. The form of the furniture unit was inspired by a combination of a comfortable seating furniture and an iceberg filled with vacuum. Here is a description from the producer, “Airberg by Jean-Marie Massaud is an innovative piece of furniture that breaks with conventions. The furniture’s abstract form is light in its expression and Airberg is contemporary both in its design and in the technique used.
Airberg consists of a structural case which gives the impression of being filled with a vacuum, but is in reality filled with a flexible padding material. The unique craftsmanship used in the production of Airberg makes it possible to create a deconstructed piece of furniture that is more defined in its asymmetry. Jean-Marie Massaud has created a piece of furniture that is comfortable, sustainable and competent, making it highly contemporary.
“Offecct is prominent in offering the market a strong and varied product selection. This means that with Airberg I could take a step further and break with conventions and question existing norms of what a piece of seating furniture usually looks like”, says Jean-Marie Massaud.
