There is a growing demand across sectors for casual, flexible spaces that blur the work/life boundary, emphasise soft qualities, engage the senses, and are designed to support wellness and comfort.
With this in mind, Arper realised some video-interviews with opinion leaders and key partners who shared their philosophy on designing human-centred spaces.
Fabienne O’Neill, co-founder, together with Charlie Rosier, of Cuckooz Nest talks about how soft environments have the power to connect people.
Cuckooz Nest is a hybrid workspace that unites under the same roof a fully flexible Ofsted-registered nursery and an integrated workspace for parents and children under two.
Arper Catifa 46 chairs were selected as part of the design for the main co-working space area, creating a soft, human-centred atmosphere while promoting collaboration, creativity and productivity.
“For the design of Cuckooz Nest, we wanted to create a workspace that was vibrant and at the same time warm and homely", commented Leo Wood.
“We fell in love with the Arper Catifa 46 chairs and we wanted to make them central to our design. The colour palette was perfect."
“With this Catifa chair we were able to create a really stylish look for our main workspace table, making it feel more like a homely kitchen table than a meeting room table. The mix and match approach with the colours was perfect too – meaning we could make the chairs work exactly for our specific needs.”
