takes inspiration from Koskela’s iconic Jake chair with its tubular steel frame that can be powder coated in a range of Koskela colours.
When designing Jacob, we upped the sustainability stakes. Koskela’s industrial designers took up the challenge of making Jacob’s components repairable or replaceable, so the product can be maintained over time. A major innovation is the removable covers, which is a unique feature for this type of product within the market. Easily removed, the covers can be regularly dry-cleaned and after several years replaced, to keep the product in tip-top condition.
This contrasting steel frame is the base for the soft upholstered Jacob family, which can be adapted for various types of contemporary working environments.
The Jacob sofa is available in a standard, midback and highback version. The standard Jacob is suitable for relaxed social spaces. The midback and highback have an extended back and sides. As well as offering visual and acoustic separation, this has a cocooning effect, which is ideal for seclusion in open-plan spaces.
The sofa cushions are a soft yet supportive foam. Available in most commercial-grade fabrics, the upholstery features a thick piping detail. The overall effect is plush and comfortable, offering sanctuary and inviting mindfulness.
This is the single-seater standard Jacob sofa. It’s recommended for relaxed social spaces.
