Airberg by Jean-Marie Massaud is awarded Best Sofa at Muuuz International Awards 2014 (MIAW2014)
Airberg started as an experiment in Offecct Lab in 2013, and officially launched as a part of Offecct’s standard collection during this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan. Airberg has quickly become a much sought after sofa and is a result of a
long and creative relationship between French designer Jean-Marie Massaud and Offecct.
– Offecct is prominent in offering the market a strong and varied product selection. This means that with Airberg I could take a step further and break with conventions and question existing norms of what a piece of seating furniture usually looks like, says Jean-Marie Massaud.
Airberg consists of a structural case that gives the impression of being filled with a vacuum, but it is in reality held up by an advanced set of elastic ribs and springs. The unique craftsmanship used in the production of Airberg makes it possible to create a deconstructed piece of furniture that is more defined by its asymmetrical shape. Jean-Marie Massaud has created a piece of furniture that
is comfortable, sustainable and unique, making it highly contemporary.
