Polar Perch

An ingenious design with many different perspectives, it intelligently interprets the uniqueness and needs of an increasingly mobile and multi-faceted contemporary lifestyle. Polar Perch, designed by PearsonLloyd, consists of the pairing of two softly curved elements of different heights that form complementary pairs. While the individual, stand-alone lower element functions as a seat, the higher piece, when paired with it, becomes a backrest, or additional higher bench seating, or a table-top surface. The innovative design of these modular pieces means they can be arranged to create unusual shapes of amazing aesthetic impact with customizable solutions for various types of settings.
