NeoCon 2012: Coalesse

Coalesse offered a few new products at this year’s NeoCon that revolve around improving both open spaces and conference rooms – but there was one product which really caught my eye.


What they say:

“As mobile work moves around, it often needs to spread out — at home, at universities, in hotel rooms, even in creative business environments. Hosu encourages spreading out. Designed by Patricia Urquiola, this unique work lounge creates a comforting personal space to relax and get things done. The single seat lounge can be ordered with convertible chaise foldout. The two-seat sofa brings two people together even if they are focused on different tasks. Hosu features convenient rear and side storage pockets and cord pass-through. Its unique textured fabric, also designed by Urquiola, is offered in five exclusive colors.”

What I say:

Hosu excited me because it not only looks amazing – but is a comfortable option that is not awkward in the way that beanbags are. I’m all about comfortable 3rd spaces in offices to brainstorm, relax, or work and this looks like it combines all three wonderfully.
