The Moment chair by Fiez Design Studio is a great example of how deign is influenced by modern times. Oh how times have changed! It seems that we all have become a bunch of loungers. We like to kick back while interacting with our peeps, coffee and technology. The Feiz Design Studio reflected on the activities that have replaced “just sitting” and created a chair that would enhance one’s sitting activities.

Offecct / 2012
Observing those “moments” which we engage in while seated was the key inspiration for this project. Noticing that we rarely “just sit”, we started to reflect on all the activities we do while sitting: all the moments that we read, drink a cup of coffee, work, engage in conversation… ‘Moment’ was born out of these situations.
We believe that this multi-dimensionality requires new solutions that are more reflective of our activities, just as the old wooden school chair with an integrated tablet did in the context of the classroom. We wanted to create a chair, which is a hybrid, an integral piece composed of two intertwined functionalities that are seamlessly merged into one. And in turn, reflects our daily activities in larger settings such as lounges, receptions, collaborative spaces and offices, and even in your home when you’re reading the morning paper while enjoying your coffee or working on your laptop.
The design is based on a generous flowing cup shape, supporting your body, which gently transforms into a small articulating table opening up for a surface for your coffee and closing in front of you when you want to work. This opening and closing gesture also reinforces the notion of private and public, suggesting to others that you are available for conversation or you are busy with work, a social gauge, if you will.
Cold-foam Moulded and upholstered in one integral structure, complimented by an articulating table in powder-coated aluminium. Available in a variety of feet configurations and finishes, the Moment is a seamless fit into Offecct’s conscientious and progressive range of furniture.
