The minimalist-styled collection prepares to transform the traditional concept of lounge and waiting areas for commercial and corporate environments. Spanish designer Carlos Tiscar came up with the idea for Lapse after considering how much of our lives we spend waiting in areas such as the hairdressers, doctor’s surgery or the airport. Whilst some of these spaces can possess outdated or uninspiring decor, Carlos was enthused to create a solution which would serve modern demands with a stimulating style. “I have used all of my own observations and personal experiences to design Lapse,” explains Carlos “with the aim of addressing the issues and small frustrations which individuals face when using waiting area seating.”
Lapse accounts for the various demands of modern day public seating, resulting in upholstered seats, backrests, lateral or intermediate arms and tables that can all be combined with ease to produce original configurations. The rounded base of the backrests allows for components to be joined seamlessly, whilst their flat and wide surface provides additional arm support or space for small objects.
Alongside comfort and elegance, Lapse incorporates the latest in technology with optional USB and wireless charging devices or double outlet extensions that can be fitted into any of the units. USB charging devices can also be added to backrests to deliver further versatility. Tables are available in lacquered wood or Oak veneer, with extra dimensions offered to create magazine rack features and supplementary workspace.
Upholstered components can be customized in a variety of graded-in fabrics, leathers or COM, complementing solid Oak or epoxy painted legs. The legs of Lapse are connected discretely to the unit via a sleek steel frame, creating a seemingly lightweight yet sturdy support for the seats. Cushions are also available to transport the coziness of the home to public environments.
