Airberg (still a prototype) "is an innovative piece of furniture that breaks with conventions... [the] result of an ongoing R&D-process where Offecct and Jean-Marie Massaud dared to develop a piece of seating furniture for the meeting places of the future." says Offecct.

"The inspiration behind the form of Airberg is a combination of a comfortable, inviting piece of seating furniture and an iceberg [inflated] with a vacuum. The furniture's abstract form is light in its expression and Airberg is contemporary both in its design and in the technique used."

"Airberg consists of a structural case which gives the impression of being filled with a vacuum, but is in reality filled with a flexible padding material. The unique craftsmanship used in the production of Airberg makes it possible to create a deconstructed piece of furniture that is more defined in its asymmetry." More at Offecct. Via Architonic.
