Sustainability embedded in sofa – Netframe by Cate&Nelson for Offecct

Netframe sofa developed for Offecct is based on sustainability – a common ground for company's R&D and design philosophy of Cate & Nelson. Designers had an idea to create a piece of furniture that consumes as little material as possible while maintaining a high comfort.

Netframe is just being presented for the first time at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, which starts today, being the biggest happening in Scandinavian furniture and lighting design.

Cate & Nelson believe it is important to see the wholeness in their design, that the product is responsible at all stages; from production to usage, which is very apparent in their design of Netframe, their first project developed for Offecct.

We wanted that Netframe is easy to produce with minimal time and material usage. In order to succeed with this challenge we had to turn everything upside down in the development process, explained designers Cate & Nelson.
