Impressive functionality and aesthetics

Normbau wins “Design Plus powered by ISH 2019” for its new modular seating system

Functionality and aesthetics united harmoniously in a single product: introducing the new, modular seating system developed by Normbau GmbH in collaboration with Danish design studio, C. F. Møller. The system combines the safety of an accessible bathroom with a range of flexible options to suit user requirements. It is even set to pick up a Design Plus award on the opening day of ISH 2019.

Innovative functionality in a timeless design

Behind its timeless, unobtrusive design, this discreet piece of kit is actually hiding a high-tech product with advanced features that can be customised to meet the user’s individual needs. Ergonomics and aesthetics were the primary considerations during the design phase of this seat with its structured surface. The pared-back design is underlined by the sleek look of the seat and backrest with their soft rounded edges. Even in its folded-up position, the visual impact remains uncompromised. The modular seating system is available in white or anthracite.

Modular expansions to suit individual requirements

The seat is secured to a Vario plate, making it easy to both assemble and remove. It can even be secured to the shower hand rail or to the wall depending on user preference. The smooth, fluid design of the surfaces is incredibly easy to clean, making this a practical piece of kit for daily use. And with the option to add additional modules including a backrest, armrests and floor support, the versatile seating system can be adapted to suit all requirements. The armrests can be operated individually and can fold out in two positions for customised support. When the seat is folded out, the optional, pressure-driven floor support opens automatically as a fully integrated and seamless addition to the overall, premium-quality design.

Design Plus award for pioneering solutions

The functional and aesthetic properties of the new, modular seating system have even taken the professionals by storm. Indeed, this innovation from Normbau was selected as one of this year’s prize winners by the jury for the “Design Plus powered by ISH 2019”. According to the awards nomination, the product offers outstanding performance with a clever combination of technology and design. The Design Plus awards ceremony takes place on the opening day of the ISH event. Visitors can discover more about the modular seating system by visiting the Normbau stand or heading over to the special Design Plus exhibition in the foyer of Hall 4.2.
