Why is it Special?
A contemporary sofa, understated yet statement-making, Offset is the result of research into ‘balance’ by Norm Architects. The studio wanted to create a sofa as simply as possible while embracing a set of paradoxes: making it substantial yet delicate in appearance, architectural yet inviting and homey. In the studio, the designers experimented with offsetting – playing with proportions, narrow armrests versus a thick generous seat, supported by four stubby metal legs. The clean-lined boxy shape is inspired by minimalist art, gently softened for a welcoming expression and maximised for comfort.
