And since the ambition to work together has been mutual, we are very happy to launch our first product designed by FRONT: GREEN PEDESTALS.
Green Pedestals is part of OFFECCT’s O2asis project which is an assortment of design products, that combined with vegetation enhances and adds value to the work environment, specifically through a conscious use of greenery and an improved air quality.
“We were inspired by traditional pedestals. We think that the pedestal is a fantastic piece of furniture that needs a revival. With slim legs that are slightly irregular Green Pedestals receives a kind of a personality”, FRONT continues
Green Pedestals can be used as a room element, functioning as a room for divider example, which can be seen in Front’s sketch below:
