Form vs. Function

Kist It Better...

How to Bridge the Gap between Form and Function

The ultimate dilemma for designers within today’s consumer society is whether to favour form or function when designing a product. Is it the style and aesthetic appeal that is important, or is it the overall functional qualities of the product? After all, it is the design that makes or breaks a product’s popularity.

What most people tend to overlook is the fact that a simple design can often become the most effective product, both aesthetically and functionally through its balance of form and functionality.

The new Kist seating range is a fantastic example of how simplicity of form can be combined with the functionality of an ergonomic design, in order to produce an effective sculptural piece of furniture, and a modern solution for informal areas. It manages to combine soft comfort with extreme ergonomic support in a clever design, which is lightweight, yet generously proportioned.

The Kist chair has the flexibility for meeting, greeting or breakout areas. The flowing lines and superb quality of the upholstery detailing maintains a high degree of design integrity. There is the option of a chrome solid wire frame, or an elegant swivel base, which provides the versatility required within the modern office environment.

Introducing the Paperweight Desk

Looking to a Cardboard Future
Introducing the 100% Recyclable, 100% Sustainable PAPERWEIGHT DESK.

In today's society, cardboard is so common in daily life, that we tend to overlook its potential as a highly versatile material. In fact, if we really think about it, cardboard has made a revolutionary contribution to the worldwide packaging and shipping industries. But beyond that, what can cardboard be used for?

Well, an astonishing new range of furniture products has been developed, made entirely of cardboard. These products have been designed to be highly functional both for use in the home and in the office. They are composed of 74% recycled paper and 26% virgin fibres, which come from fast-growing sustainable sources, making these products extremely environmentally friendly and cost effective in today’s commercial society.  All of these cardboard products are fully certified, and meet UK and European legislation, making them fit for purpose for demanding contract and commercial use, as well as in the home and small office.

Our favourite product from the range, is the Paperweight Desk. Like other products in the range, the Paperweight Desk has a simple, clean and highly functional design, combined with clever engineering which makes it extremely lightweight, immensely strong, and excellent value for money.

1500 mm (w) x 750 mm (d) x 720 mm (h)

The Paperweight Desk is made of special single walled clay coated corrugated board, with a solid board, water varnished top which is capable of repelling all spills.  Its design integrates a deep cable management tray and an under-desk 'secret' shelf.  There are cable outlet slots and twin access points with covers, which can be found on the top of the desk, and the legs of the desk can be positioned inset or outset as required.  The desk is available in bespoke colours or designs on demand.  It is supplied half assembled, with an easy-to-follow instruction sheet for quick assembly in under five minutes.
