Barber & Osgerby takes into consideration the contemporary working environment and its future when designing this flexible sofa piece for Vitra. With this chic, minimalist seating arrangement, the London-based studio attempts to give office cultures a break from the traditional desk setup and accommodate the rising popularity of 'hot desking.' This is an office dynamic, where workers are not given their own desk but allocate workspaces based on need and on a rotating basis.
With this definition, it is easy to see where Barber & Osgerby's flexible sofa fits in and what degree of usefulness it has. Through it, the studio "focuses around the working environment versus an environment centered around desks." This promotes creativity and a sense of freedom.
