Botera Offers Optimum Comfort in Public Spaces
View Slideshow

When you think of waiting rooms, lobbies, and public spaces, comfort probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind as the contract market has typically been known to focus on utility only. Luckily in recent years that has begun to change with some designers and brands modeling the designs off of residential furniture. Botera is the latest to fall into this category as the modular seating system moves comfort to the forefront. Designed by E-GGS for Miniforms, the Botera system is perfect for spaces that might evolve over time as the components can be rearranged into an infinite number of configurations.

The modules are outfitted with four different types of foam to ensure maximum comfort, almost blurring the boundaries between contract and home settings. The chunky bases are paired with angled backs that allow the pieces to fit together into various compositions, whether it’s to bring people together or to offer them a bit of privacy.
