Pebble by Osko+Deichmann

London Design Festival 09: Berlin design studio Osko+Deichmann will present a range of seating inspired by a pebble at The Dock in London next week.

Designed for Swedish brand Blå Station, the Pebble range are based on a stone found in the designers' studio.

The range includes an armchair, two- and three-seater sofas, and a footstool.

Pebble will be shown at VORBOTEN: 7 Studios from Berlin, at The Dock from tomorrow.

The Dock takes place at Portobello Dock, 344 Ladbroke Grove, London W10 from 21-27 September.

Here's some text from the designers:



Pebble is a sofa and easy chair- range that could provide both calm and an opportunity to recharge – right in the midst of a hectic life.

As the name indicates the range is inspired by rocks and stones, because of their size, strength and unchangeable qualities, they symbolize harmony.

Pebble comes as an easy chair, a 2-seater sofa and a 3-Seater sofa, which can as well be used as a daybed extra bed when you have night guests. The easy chair can be accompanied by a footstool.

In their studio the designers noticed a small, beautifully rounded pebble.

It was dark grey, very smooth and had a neat white line running across it.

The line as a graphic element, together with the pebble’s pleasant form and texture, became the base for the design in PEBBLE.

They also added a functional ornament, the wire frame enclosing the sofa and holding the loose cushions in place, to create an interesting line pattern often found on stones.
