New opportunities as Font sofa system grows
Matti Klenell and Offecct have now further developed the successful sofa system Font and added more parts and functions. Font, which was first developed for the Swedish Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, is a graphically clear modular sofa with historical roots and contemporary versatility.

Font was born out of a concrete need for a visually simple sofa that is easy to use, combine and move around. Th idea was it to have a contemporary minimalist expression and at the same time carry a part of the Nationalmuseum’s history.

“Font is based on reduction and the shape felt just right for me from the first moment, with a refined simplicity and good comfort. Therefore, it has been both natural and fun to continue to develop it with more modules,” says Matti Klenell.

The graphic clarity also inspired the name Font with its associations to letters that can be combined and shaped into a distinct furniture language. The straight and curved modules that were launched in 2018 are now complemented with an armchair, straight benches and added curved modules that enable an outward-facing seating as well.

“From the start, the idea with the system was that it could grow out of the museum and be used in many different public spaces. That’s exactly what has happened and with the new parts, the flexibility and versatility have become even greater and so have the possibilities” says Matti Klenell.
