Award for pioneering solutions
Functionality and aesthetics united harmoniously in a single product: introducing the new, modular seating system developed by C.F. Møller Design in collaboration with Normbau GmbH
The system combines the safety of an accessible bathroom with a range of flexible options to suit user requirements. It was introduced at ISH 2019 in Frankfurt and picked up a Design Plus award on the opening day, March 22.
Innovative functionality in a timeless design
Behind its timeless, unobtrusive design, this discreet piece of kit is actually hiding a high-tech product with advanced features that can be customised to meet the user’s individual needs. Ergonomics and aesthetics were the primary considerations during the design phase of this seat with its structured surface. The pared-back design is underlined by the sleek look of the seat and backrest with their soft rounded edges. Even in its folded-up position, the visual impact remains uncompromised. The modular seating system is available in white or anthracite.
Modular expansions to suit individual requirements
The seat is secured to a Vario plate, making it easy to both assemble and remove. It can even be secured to the shower hand rail or to the wall depending on user preference. The smooth, fluid design of the surfaces is incredibly easy to clean, making this a practical piece of kit for daily use. And with the option to add additional modules including a backrest, armrests and floor support, the versatile seating system can be adapted to suit all requirements. The armrests can be operated individually and can fold out in two positions for customised support. When the seat is folded out, the optional, pressure-driven floor support opens automatically as a fully integrated and seamless addition to the overall, premium-quality design.
Design Plus award for pioneering solutions
The functional and aesthetic properties of the new, modular seating system have even taken the professionals by storm. Indeed, this innovation from Normbau was selected as one of this year’s prize winners by the jury for the “Design Plus powered by ISH 2019”. According to the awards nomination, the product offers outstanding performance with a clever combination of technology and design.
