(PRWEB) February 4, 2011
One of OFFECCT’s most successful product lines is Bond, designed by French designer Jean-Marie Massaud. Bond is characterized by a minimalistic and gentle form that invites interaction between people. The Bond series consists of a wide range of chairs, armchairs and tables and is currently represented in a number of attractive interiors worldwide.
In response to an increased demand from customers and architects, OFFECCT now expands the Bond family with two new products. A neater chair called Bond Xtra Light, and a higher easy chair named Bond High.
Bond Xtra Light takes the original’s minimalistic design a step further. The result is a lightweight, space-saving chair with excellent comfort, that can be placed in large numbers next to each other.
Bond High is a new, higher version of the original Bond easy chair, which combines a relaxed and comfortable feeling with greater integrity. Bond High also comes with a footstool.
”We always listen to requests from our customers and partners, and it was therefore natural for us to expand the Bond series with a lighter chair and a higher easy chair," says Kurt Tingdal CEO, OFFECCT.
"The interest expressed by our customers, combined with Jean-Marie Massaud’s excellent development of Bond’s original design, makes us confident that the new products will be well received by the market,” says Kurt Tingdal.
