Cabin was first conceived as a sheltered sofa family designed for the Uniper project in Düsseldorf in cooperation with our German distributor merTens AG and the Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The collection then further grew into a range of sofas and acoustic booths.
The Cabin collection is made for cocooning. If you want to sequester yourself for an important phone call or a confidential meeting, Cabin is the place to go thanks to its high acoustic qualities. It offers you a sheltered environment with lighting, power and data support for concentrated individual or teamwork.
An extra comfort level is achieved by Nosag springs in the seating modules and the stitching provides extra durability for the fabric and an ever clean, no-wrinkle look.
The acoustic sandwich panels contain a bio-sourced insulation from recycled cotton. Cotton textiles cannot be reused as they are and would otherwise be used for incineration. It gives a second life to a quality raw material whose insulating and acoustic properties are recognized, finding applications in housing, public area and tertiary buildings.
