Bright blue Mod Highback collection of sofas and seating

Mod Highback seating by Henrik Schulz for HBF

Dezeen Showroom: architect Henrik Schulz has expanded his Mod seating collection for furniture brand HBF, adding highback versions that can create a privacy-lounge experience in the workplace.

The Mod Highback seating extends the versatile, Scandinavian-inspired Mod collection with three new options — a high-backed lounge chair, a two-seater sofa and a three-seater sofa.

The seating collection is a contract solution that can be easily scaled for public spaces, hospitality venues and lounges, and the Highback options work particularly well for workplaces, where they can provide a lounge area for people who want a change from their desks.

The high back wraps around to create a sense of visual and acoustic privacy and minimise distractions, and as with the entire Mod series, there is the option of an "engaged" higher leg height of 18.5 inches.

"Companies will have to fight harder in the future to attract new employees and office design is one way of doing just that," said Schultz. "That is why we created a flexible piece that works in any space."

The Mod series is available in a wide range of high-performance upholstery, including bleach-cleanable woven textiles, and the seat, back and arm cushions can all be removed for replacement or repair.
