Inspired by beach pebbles. Flat, irregular round stones, tumbled smooth by millions of ocean waves. Soft and beautiful to the touch and to the eye.

Pebbles is an adjustable piece of seating furniture that is not a sofa but is best described as a ”seating island”. An upholstered disc, about two metres wide, forms a generous seating platform, while a pillar supports a smaller, centred disc (also upholstered). The smaller disc functions as a backrest, armrest, table/work surface or even a second seating platform. An unusual piece of furniture design – a whole new typology for seating.

The Pebbles seating island is still one of our greatest successes, having won design awards and world recognition.
