Famed for their Paper Softwall which earned the permanent collection by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, Molo Studio is expanding the collection by introducing a series of softseating, a continuation of the Paper softwall project.
Utilizing a honeycomb structure to fan open into stools, benches, and loungers, each softseating has magnetic end panels, allowing an element to connect to itself, forming a cylindrical stool or low table, or to connect to other elements of the same size in series, creating long winding benches and endless possibilities for seating topographies. The beauty of these pieces is that they are sculptural abstract forms, each made from a single material, that can be used creatively and interchangeably as seating or low tables.
Based in Vancouver, Canada, Molo Studio is a collaborative design and production studio led by Stephanie Forsythe, Todd MacAllen and Robert Pasut.
