Named after the laminated veneer wrap that contains each seat space, Rap is warm and architectural in its presence. A refined steel frame contains an architectural shell for the soft internal upholstery and provides anchor points for a range of ancillary surfaces and tablets. Whether in workplace or hospitality settings, the fixed circular and articulating rectangular tablets bring a new dimension of functionality by aiding relaxation, collaboration and personal work. This optimises shared space and enables laptop use for extended periods of time away from a desk. Rap illustrates Pearson Lloyd’s continued exploration into informal work settings, and the creation of supportive and flexible environments that promotes both productivity and wellbeing.
