A user-driven design process

In extensive user-needs reviews conducted in Tokyo, Sydney and every other major city in the Asia Pacific region, conversations with customers, architects and designers helped us to reinvent the workplace experience.

A benchmark solution

Our exceptional bench solution is based on 5 key requirements:

1. Minimal under-structure
2. Privacy on demand
3. Democratic power access
4. Accessible accessories
5. User-needs driven storage solutions

Arras promises a free and easy solution: you should be able to sit anywhere and at any time; your decision informed by work schedule, available space, the nature of your task, relationships with others and of course, personal preference.

De-materialisation is one of the primary development criteria that informs our careful material selection. It is our responsibility as product designers to minimise the materials and processes we use in achieving our objective, in order to lower the carbon footprint of the products we create.
