PROJECT NAME: Kvart
NAME OF CLIENT: Fora Form AS
PROJECT COMPLETED BY: Lars Tornøe
Discipline(s): furniture design, industrial design
From cafeteria to boardroom
Historically and strategically, conferencing is a focus area for Fora Form, but the product portfolio needed a boost conceptually, visually, and functionally. In collaboration with furniture designer Tornøe, they have come up with Kvart. A flexible conference table concept for the export market, Fora Form are aiming for it to become the largest volume product within their table collection by 2020.
Kvart is an impressive refinement of a well-known product: the conference table. The table stands out as elegant and discreet with a timeless character. The shape itself is perceived as harmonious, almost organic, and the slim feet give the table an apparently effortless lightness. Since this table is intended for larger customers in the export market, logistics forms an important part of the product design, and both material usage and the simple assembly solution are evidence of good understanding in this regard. We also like the fact that Kvart can be combined with other solutions, and that it suits the cafeteria as well as the boardroom. We therefore have great confidence in Kvart as an export product and congratulate Fora Form on yet another good piece of furniture.
