Jean-Marie Massaud’s Airberg is one of the first products from the Offecct Lab, a comfortable, inviting piece of seating furniture inspired by “an iceberg filled with vacuum.”

Not ready for production just yet, Airberg, which will be shown at the 2013 Stockholm Furniture Fair, is one of the first results to come out of the work of the Offecct Lab, a strategic initiative designed to concentrate Offecct’s efforts in the development of new solutions and new products.

“Airberg consists of a structural case which gives the impression of being filled with a vacuum, but is in reality filled with a flexible padding material.” says Offecct. “The unique craftsmanship used in the production of Airberg makes it possible to create a deconstructed piece of furniture that is more defined in its asymmetry. Jean-Marie Massaud has created a piece of furniture that is comfortable, sustainable and competent, making it highly contemporary.”
