As we travel more, we continually find ourselves in transit areas – vast seas of inhospitable and unwelcoming space that Marc Augué has dubbed “non-places”.
Sancal turned to Note, a Swedish design studio to provide some relief for weary travellers. They came up with La Isla as a solution. Its seductive curves and soft upholstery call out to all those navigating a lobby, desperately seeking refuge. A place to share with strangers while respecting their privacy; isolated but not excluded.
Once installed on the Isla they will not be disappointed. The upholstery is just as comfortable as it looks with generous proportions and soft materials. La Isla comes in three different sizes and a selection of fabrics from Sancal’s collection. The plinth can be lacquered in any of the colours as per the chart.
