Design studio Nendo has crafted a unique sofa system for KOKUYO, complete with high backs, that gives individuals and groups a place for privacy in an office environment. Named Brackets, the seating is meant to “bracket” whoever is sitting, like parentheses.

There are seven sofa modules and four table types so users can customize to their liking and needs, but also arrange to suit the space.

While the sofas do provide privacy, they still remain open, offering a balance for those sitting down.

The outer parts are made up of sharp lines, while the interior sports curvier, softer ones, making office visitors perfectly comfortable while also fitting in with the office environment.
