PROOFF stands for product development for the progressive office. it is a platform for sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas.

the work sofa is a product which takes standard furniture concepts and turns them upside down. in a standard couch, your choice of seating is limited. her you can adapt the work sofa to suit your needs, moving its component pieces like a giant puzzle, exploiting any one of a number of possible arrangements.
