Sabot

A Friendly Character

SABOT is a playful arrangement of abstract volumes supported by characterful timber feet that are a celebration of Prostoria’s woodworking capability. The modular sofa system takes its name from a type of simple, timber shoe – a nod to these wooden feet. The soft and approachable design language is inspired by residential interiors, and brings a strong playful identity to commercial spaces.

Each module has a super-soft, friendly silhouette that floats above the exposed timber legs in a cloud-like way, and these modules can be combined to create linear or island configurations. The movable side accessories – including tables and dividers – mimic the floating language of these seating modules, while planters offer the ability to create green privacy screens.
