embraces with its arms
Huggi is the creative innovation of David Fox, a total modular seating system comprising of high and low backs, and semi-private booths. It is the ideal product for the modern working environments where personal touchdown spaces and informal meeting areas are the norms.
“The design journey of Huggi began with linking seating that divided corporate spaces, the aim to have a low and high backed option, to make different shapes with the units to the needs of the user or interior designer. The wing idea was to give the person sitting their privacy but also offer a visual gap, so it doesn’t look so heavy.’’ says David Fox.
The high back option is about the embrace of the people sitting within the product, how a mother offers her arms and hands to embrace a child, the upholstered wings are significant of these hands, also offering a purpose, by shielding the user, giving them elements of privacy and some acoustic benefit.
Huggi can be used to divide a breakout space, linked together, make an l shape or U section. An acoustic pod progressed into Huggi, it really works well and dampens the sound in a very busy public space or office. So the booth has acoustically sound working benefits for meetings, or video conferencing.
