Plump: A Fusion of Comfort and Functionality

Modular Seating Collection by Elena Prokhorova

Elena Prokhorova's Plump collection, a modular seating solution, marries functionality with minimalist aesthetics, drawing inspiration from geometric shapes. The collection offers a timeless seating solution that is both functional and stylish.

The Plump collection stands out for its versatility, allowing users to combine modules and create comfortable compositions for any task. Both large and small spaces can be easily organized with this collection, leaving ample room for creativity. The built-in charging points solve the issue of waiting times by making them more efficient. With its modular design, the Plump collection offers convenience and flexibility to users.

The seat is made of foam and upholstered in fabric. The frame is made of natural ash wood. At the user's request, the modules can be equipped with a USB socket or a table. The plinth can be either wooden or covered with upholstery fabric. The technical specifications include two sizes: Width 800 mm, Depth 800 mm, Height 650 mm; and Width 1600 mm, Depth 800 mm, Height 650 mm.

The Plump seating collection ensures that users never have to worry about their phone running out of battery during a meaningful conversation again. This collection allows users to focus on what's essential or relax in the soft embrace of its armchairs.

The Plump collection was designed based on a simple study that aimed to identify the common problems users face during the waiting process in public places. The study revealed that users often face a lack of seating space and uncharged gadgets and phones. To address these issues, the Plump collection was created, offering ample seating space for every user and built-in charging points for their technology.

When creating the Plump collection, it was necessary to take into account that the combinations are suitable both for large open spaces and when using a minimum number of modules or even one module. This need dictated the shape of the modules and their dimensions. The Plump modular seating collection has a minimalistic design that seamlessly blends round and square shapes to create a functional and visually appealing solution. The collection's straight lines convey a sense of efficiency, while the soft exterior lines offer a comfortable and calming experience.

Prokhorova's design was awarded Silver in A' Furniture Design Award in 2023. Silver A' Design Award is rewarded to top-of-the-line, creative, and professionally remarkable designs that illustrate outstanding expertise and innovation. These designs, admired for their strong technical characteristics and splendid artistic skill, showcase a remarkable level of excellence and introduce positive feelings, amazement, and wonder.
