For 2012′s product line we asked Ineke Hans to design a sofa along the lines of last year’s successful O2ASIS initiative. The result is SMALLROOM, a sofa that can be used together in different modules, or alone.
SMALLROOM is characterized by a “box” on the side which can be used for placing plants, as a working surface or for storage. This provides for many possibilities of variation.
The back of the sofa can be compared to a high wall functioning as a sort of protection when one is seated, and creates the impression that one is sitting in a smaller room.
SMALLROOM is offered with different back and side heights, which provides the architect a possibility to create environments that evoke interest, through the help of different dimensions. SMALLROOM provides space for different kinds of activities, both individual and group activities.
Ineke Hans has a degree from Royal College of Art in London and founded her own design agency INEKEHANS/ARNHEM in the Netherlands at the end of the 1990s. Ineke Hans works with a great number of different projects like furniture, product design and jewelry.
While new technology and new materials are important to Ineke Hans, there is often a stroke of poetry in her designs. Ineke Hans has received a great number of awards, among others the Red Dot Awards and Design Plus Awards.
