Adaptable Furniture Pieces

Patrick Norguet's New Furniture Line Blurs Work and Home

— October 12, 2021 — Art & Design
French furniture designer Patrick Norguet has collaborated with Natuzzi Italia in a multipurpose furniture collection. Dubbed the Poly Collection, this line of furniture responds to the needs of those working from home.

The design team sought to create furniture pieces that are adaptable and respond to the new realities of the pandemic world - remote work in small spaces. Noruguet drew inspiration from Meditteranean functionality - where functional and straightforward furnishings are favored. The collection features a desk/table, a bed, chairs, and modular dividers.

Noruguet designed the modular dividers to help reinterpret the way we think of domestic spaces. The partitions block out sound and create distinct areas for work and leisure. At the same time, the desk/table was designed with small spaces in mind and can double as a dining and working space.
