Apps is a collection of chairs and sofas which mimics the shape of smartphone icons. Debuting at the 2012 Interieur design biennale in Belgium, Dutch designer Richard Hutten developed the seating for Artifort. Hutten began with a 2d rounded off square shape commonly used as the silhouette for app buttons. The design of each piece uses that shape on the front and sides to create a boxy volume. The seat surface is formed with a cut out and highlighted with a contrasting fabric color. How fast might Apps become the go-to chair for tech company lobbies?
