Spaceist brightens up the IPA with colourful breakout seating



Here at Spaceist, we work with a variety of organisations to create the ideal furniture package for their project. From entire office spaces to simply just working on breakout areas, we work to multiple briefs and on ranging scales. A project for The Institute of Practitioners in Advertising to supply a furniture package for a breakout area and cinema room. 

The project consisted of two main areas that required vibrant options; seating for a refurbished breakout area and seating for a new cinema space. The room required a selection of seating options that were both comfortable and durable whilst offered a bespoke choice to fit into the smaller spaces. To meet all these requirements, we presented the Modular Cube range. 

The Modular Cubes come in over 20 modular elements that can be configured to fit any spatial area. The elements include corner and curved units that can be used to create a sofa that fits an unconventional room shape. For the breakout area, we supplied the Modular Cubes in 1/4 circle cubes and 82cm long cubes. Specified in a vibrant shade of purple, two different formations were created. Further booth style seating was used within the breakout room by using rounded corner configuration Modular Cubes. Supplied in a bright yellow shade, this offers comfortable seating that also heightens communication.

The brief also required we supply seating for cinema style seating. In order to create a functional cinema room, it was vital these there both comfortable and fit within the space that was provided. For this, we supplied a range of straight Modular units with back rests and arm rests that would not restrict any views and would be homogenous to the rest of the style of seating within the breakout room. The choice to vinyl upholstery was made for its qualities against spills and stains, making it easy to maintain and clean plus for providing a high level of hygiene for this social space.

To accompany the seating, we also supplied a selection of Trumpet tables. Presenting a clean and simple form, the Trumpet tables are composed of a laminate top and trumpet-shaped steel base. Available in a wide selection of sizes, the top can be specified in either white, black, wenge, oak or a bespoke colour. Here, the choice of white allows a contrast against the bright yellow and purple Modular Cubes. The final result,  a colourful combination of theatre style seating and round breakout booth style seating was well matched to the needs outlined by the client and the requirements for the breakout rooms.
