The Phoenix collection luminously represents the Lifecircle philosophy that is the soul of Offecct. Every piece is carefully conceived, thought through, purposefully designed and crafted for a long, sustainable and flexible life cycle. The fruit of this development process is a chair of original elegance and contemporary timelessness.
The look of Phoenix is derived from a recycled aluminum frame with a trademark Y-shaped base. The upholstered parts can be easily removed and replaced when needed — or when the client wants a new color or material for novel functions and/or styles. The result is a brand new chair whose used parts are recycled.
The Phoenix table has a slender shape that captures the expressions of the chair in a distinct but subtle way. The length is flexible and can be adjusted by adding extra inserts. The table complement the series designed to have a flexible long life according to Offecct’s Lifecircle philosophy.
“As a designer, I want to drive and push development through the products I create and together with my clients point to alternative construction, production and material solutions. Offecct has a holistic view of sustainable design that I share and by acting together we can create real change,” says Nichetto
