The Openest Collection includes sofas, pouf seating, tables and space-dividing screens that offer design flexibility.

These inclusive lounge elements function as single pieces with different purposes or integrate in an open plan to create innovative environments that bring furniture and collaborative tools together.

Graceful yet practical, Openest creates an environment of approachable comfort, adapting to people's needs for interaction or time alone.  Curved lines and upholstery stitching invoke the craftsmanship of residential furniture; soft, familiar textiles put the body and mind at ease.  Openest presents a look that's neat and uncluttered while providing a refuge of functional furniture for working or relaxing.  Screens are made from supportive recyclable material sandwiched between soft, familiar textiles.
