Project Description

Shape Bob anyway you want. Let the totally adaptable sofa snake around pillars, ow along walls, and twist around meeting areas. Bob will obediently conform to any space, or endow it with a forceful yet immensely comfortable structure. Thanks to Thomas Bernstrand and Stefan Borselius’ meticulously designed modular solution, Bob can be built straight, in hairpin bends, like a boomerang, or whatever shape takes your fancy. Bob offers architectonic freedom of ow, and with no conventional back, Bob can face totally upholstered in every direction – opening up for even more possibilities when adapting to ever-changing interior architecture. The straightforward construction with a frame in FSC-certi ed plywood with sturdy yet soft moulded foam requires a minimum of maintenance. Bob comes in a broad selection of fabrics and colours.

At its launch in 2017, Bob was hailed as Best Product - Editor’s Choice at both the Stockholm Furniture Fair and ICFF in New York, before being crowned with the German Design Award 2018. Bob has now become even more exible with two new elements that allow for even more sensuous shapes as well as freestanding seating islands. Attach the new add-on steel table Cut between the modular elements, or choose the freestand- ing Jack table, which can serve as a hub connected to the electric outlets on Bob. With an optional base in black stained oak, Bob is now also offered as a slightly raised version for public spaces.
