Place offers the most functional, modular platform to connect, experience and create. At the heart of the collection is the desire to bring people together. To support creativity in an environment which is smart, agile and intuitive. The Place collection of lounges and accessories blurs the line between residential and commercial space. Offering exceptional comfort and soft styling balanced with work-focused functionality and proportions.
The brief for the Place Lounge Collection was to create a range of contemporary modular lounges beautiful in both form and composition. This new system was formed around the desire to create complex arrangements based on a singular, square-shaped ottoman. Additional add-ons, including backs, arm rests, privacy screens and tables are then combined with the universal foundation to create multiple variations in form, for fit into designed commercial floorplans. Simple design elements join together to create infinite configurations and arrangements.
The Place Lounge Collection is endlessly modular with ottomans, lounges, arms and backs all designed to fit the needs of any space across multiple functions. Multiple back and arm heights also provide varying levels of privacy, from casual to full privacy spaces. Curved units also enable circular meeting spaces and organic floorplan configurations. Ultimately the Place Lounge Collection allows users to create focused working spaces, which then easily reconfigure to suit their next task or meeting.

The collection also includes a joining system which allow individual
The Place Lounge Collection is a truly versatile system with all square units based on an economical 730mm / 28.75” square footprint – all arms and backs fit within the square. This translates to every module joining perfectly and having the ability to sit back to back or nest together in a floorplan-friendly manner. Even curved units are based around this same footprint, with the ability to nest back to back to enable island seating or provide adjoining arrangements.
