Home Base One
Home Base One
The HomeBaseOne couch (or is it a sofa?) is the outcome of our quest for an extremely comfortable peace of seating furniture, uncompromisingly combining reading (e.g. a good book) with self indulgent binge-watching.
The sleek cubist design therefore combines the comfort and qualities of a back and armrest with the laziness of a chaise longue.
Thanks to its endless combination possibilities, this first product of
the Monoton design label just as well fits your living room as it does to the convivial lobby of a five star hotel.
Handmade in Belgium
Monoton's HomeBaseOne was developed in close co-operation with Fylds', a local crafts business, known for it's luxurious, entirely hand made "The Belgian Bed" and custom seating for some of the most exclusive hotels in Europe.
The confrontation between the design requirements and the practical manufacturability was an enrichment for both the designer and the experienced craftsmen.
The first prototype was selected by Flanders DC | District of Creativity to participate in the 2018 Belgium Art & Design trade show in Ghent.
design versus comfort
When developing the product, the biggest challenge was to find the ideal balance between the sleek design and the sitting / lying comfort. Straight lines simply don't feel soft and straight shapes usually aren't.
The solution lay in the use of a unique combination of springs. The underlying, larger pocket springs give optimal support when sitting, while the exclusive, patented HD® pocket springs support the whole body to the maximum when sunk blissfully into the chaise longue.
The Monoton HomeBaseOne is an infinitely modular seating unit, handmade by Belgian master furniture makers. It's as suitable for your intimate TV or reading corner at home as for the inviting lobby of a company or hotel.
