Sofa system designed for Nationalmuseum
Nationalmuseum, which originally opened in Stockholm in 1866, was reinaugurated in 2018 after a five-year renovation. Overall responsibility for the museum’s new restaurant interior was given to Klenell.. When the time came to develop a flexible sofa that for the restaurant interior, Klenell chose to work with Offecct – and the result is Font.
“Font is based on a simple form with a round backrest, which gives the furniture its graphic expression and character, and indeed also inspired the name. The challenge was to achieve the right height and softness, and also a construction that enables you to use Font in a context outside of the museum,” Matti Klenell explains.
Font is a sofa system that can grow into different public spaces far beyond the museum’s walls, and it also marks the first commercial collaboration between Klenell and Offecct.
Offecct has also produced several pieces of bespoke furniture in collaboration with designer Matti Klenell.
