"These furniture is an exercise in minimalism," says Mårten Claesson. "In the design we have omitted almost everything - but not everything. Something has to stay to make the furniture come alive. "The result of this balancing act by Mårten Claesson and his two partners, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune, is presented by the German manufacturer Flötotto for the first time at the Stockholm Furniture & amp; Light Fair 2017: a cubic yet graceful upholstered furniture family called "Otto", consisting of sofa, armchair and ottoman. For Flötotto, the whole thing is a first, as the family business from East Westphalia has been known for its versatile profile system and the chairs and tables by Konstantin Grcic specially designed for schools and colleges of the "Pro" collection.
However, the advance on the field of upholstered furniture is only logical for managing director Frederik Flötotto: "The educational institutions are changing. There are more lounge areas in the schools, both for teachers and students, "he explains at the Stockholm booth. Flötotto had a very clear idea of ??what kind of furniture fits in with the school environment: "It should be something classic, something that lasts a very long time, but surprises with one or the other detail." Apparently the idea of ??Claesson became Shared Koivisto Rune from Stockholm, because the cooperation was very expedient, straightforward and quick.
