Next station: Cologne

As from today PROOFF is proud to be present in the beautiful Design Post in Cologne for the special presentation that is prepared for the Orgatec fairdays. The magnificent atmosphere, the more than 30 exhibitors showing their newest developments ánd a very interesting side program with discussions and talks will guarantee a warm welcome to all. PROOFF is presenting her newest PROOFF #006 SideSeat, by Studio Makkink & Bey. the same designers behind the ground-breaking PROOFF #001 EarChair. The SideSeat presents a solution to the blending of work and leisure, public and private. It is a self-contained desk, cupboard and chair which moves with you. A balanced piece of furniture made using high quality materials. A compact workstation featuring functional elements which sit separately but together to create a flexible space where one can work, wait, read, call or train.

It is also the premiere of PROOFF#002 WorkSofa in Germany. This concept of the Dutch duo Studio Makkink & Bey was designed as a meeting place that promotes communication. From informal to intimate, the modular WorkSofa has proven itself as an ideal setting for public meetings, presentations, brainstorm sessions and group work —or even a place to have a meeting with oneself. You can make a phone call in #003 PhoneBox or even have a meeting in our #004 Niche, both designed by the Belgian Axia Design. And, last, but certainly not least is PROOFF #005 SitTable: ‘World’s longest table for all cultures’ is ready and back in the house, where the first prototype was shown two years ago. A special welcome is for the prototype of #000 WorkLamp, a result of a study of PROOFFlab, of which you will certainly learn more very soon.

Design Post is situated across the street from the Orgatec premises (Deutz-Mülheimer-Str. 22a, 50679 Köln) and is open from Tuesday 23 Oct  to Friday 26 Oct from 11am to 8pm and Saturday 27 Oct from 10am to 6 pm.
