For this project we were inspired by the urban layout of the central neighborhoods of Barcelona and there super-blocks. This highly functional urban layout takes the simple idea of cutting off the corners at a 45 degree angle of the blocks/buildings in order to improve the pedestrian flow through out the neighborhoods and improves the access around them. The Trim seating system has taken this rather elegant and beautifully simple solution and scaled it down to fulfil the needs of interior landscape.
The Trim seating system attempts to find a space saving solution within the interior by simply removing the corners of the armrests and backrests. This implementation takes up less floor space and improves the movement within the room without losing any comfort or functional elements.
Another detail that we wanted to focus on was the idea of creating a feeling of openness, so that the seating system isn’t completely closed and it could create a sort of interaction between the different areas of the room.
