As its name suggests, Ascent is a seating system that elevates public space furniture to new heights. The series was created in consultation with architects and planners to create a flexible, modular system that could change and adapt as its surroundings evolve. Designed with placemaking in mind, Ascent’s soft contours, smooth textures, and sustainable wood make public space interiors warmer and more welcoming.
Characterised by its sculptural contours and sloping backrest, Ascent takes modular seating to a new level. The concept was created in response to the growing demand for placemaking designs able to shape public space in new ways. As the modules are configured to create a unique variety of curving shapes, they can also create backrests with sloping profiles and eye-catching silhouettes. The design is fully interactive, inviting architects, planners and interior designers to customise the backrests to meet practical needs or find new expressions. Inspired by Scandinavia’s mountains and fjords, Ascent holds the potential to interpret furniture design as a seating landscape for public space interiors. Functional, playful and interactive, Ascent brings places to life and makes every interior unique.
