Ischia, PearsonLloyd’s new seating system, draws inspiration from sea worn terracotta roof tiles found in the Ionian Sea. Destined for collective settings, Ischia is a system composed from soft oblique seating and table forms, which float above shared timber and marble base elements. Screens crafted in steam-bent ash and woven cane complete each composition, allowing users to affect their sense of space and privacy. The on-going demand for spaces that bring people together in both workplace and hospitality spaces, makes Ischia utterly relevant in today’s world. The product’s apparent random quality masks an intelligent programming of space and furthers PearsonLloyd’s continuing exploration into the nature and ergonomics of how people interact in public space.
