A versatile, space-optimizing bench seating system with a variety of configurations, Island gives in-between areas a collaborative, functional use. Inviting passersby to sit, perch or lounge, the understated design creates a central focal point for high-traffic communal environments.
Island takes advantage of a non-productive area by maximizing the surrounding layout and transforming it into a practical space. Without
impeding line of sight, the freestanding, unobtrusive bench helps to define movement and natural flow through a room while staying sympathetic to its environment.
Island is made up of long modular units supported by a steel frame and panels of CLT (Cross-Laminated Timber) and optional upholstered cushions. With single or double depth options and continuing units, the system is easily scalable and expandable as communities grow. A simple portfolio of configurations, colors, textiles and add-ons can be mixed and matched to create a range of solutions. External or internal partitions can act as back rests and various sized tables and integrated charging modules provide points of engagement. Easy to dismantle and rebuild when cleaning, the units are hygienic and ideal for busy areas – and the materials are high-quality and sustainable.

A natural evolution of the successful Established & Sons’ Grid System, Islands addresses how the way we work continues to change, with breakout areas for informal, flexible use becoming increasingly prevalent.
Designer Erwan Bouroullec says, “The concept was designed to encourage relaxed social interactions, impromptu meetings, or a pause between journeys. A place to linger and recharge, bringing about productivity or rest.”
