Ikaros, designed by Koray Malhan, is a sofa as an alternative to a desk and to serve the needs of any work environment. The design can be placed in the middle of any work zone or at confluence areas to bring people together for chance or formal encounters, or to enhance cross fertilization of ideas and discussions in a work area. This design combines work with pleasure and relaxation, with the sofa doubling as a writing tablet and a table at the same time. All horizontal surfaces may be used as service areas. The extension wing in the rear is at table height, where it can be used as a worktop whilst sitting on a chair. This feature allows the seating unit to be used simultaneously from inside and outside, providing the users with a collaborative use for more casual work.
