the soufflé ottoman by cecilie manz for offecct has a soft whipped cream cushion 



swedish company offecct showcases cecilie manz ‘s ‘soufflé’ ottoman series at the stockholm furniture fair . the collection consists of three versions of poufs with an accompanying side table where everyone can congregate around. the assemblage brings to mind the rising of soufflé’s, with their cushions creating a flourishing effect. the tactile contrast between tough textile coating in base and the soft ‘whipped cream’ cushion on the top, a cutting edge mix of foam and natural feathers, which posed an interesting technical challenge. the collection is suitably built for the new office environment, creating a relaxed and informal setting.  


my own vision for the group is that of rocks in the archipelago, where you jump from stone to stone. the table is the hub around which the stools gather.’ cecilie manz says.

you can imagine this group in a lobby, for example, but with its soft, pleasant seating, it is also a crossover concept which will fit well in homes.’ cecilie manz, my inspiration comes from nature, the scandinavian heritage and the organic color scale.’
