Be a part of 855

Design: Ella Westlund

Be A Part Of is a flexible modular sofa that can be arranged to suit different needs. Its inclusive design offers natural space for a wheelchair user. This gap can also be used for a stroller or luggage, or even social distancing.

The design of Be A Part Of focuses on the tactile interplay of wood and textile – frame colours and different fabric choices can be freely combined to achieve the desired contrast, harmony and colour experience. Another tactile feature is the recessed profile in the front edge of the armrest, which creates a feel of materiality and security that may also provide positive distraction.

For the best hygiene, Be A Part Of has removable and washable upholstery, as well as a gap between the seat and back to prevent dirt and bacteria entrapment.

This furniture family is crafted in FSC-certified wood and carries the Möbelfakta label.

Care instructions for this piece of furniture

Wood is a living material whose grain has a natural variation in pattern, hue and lustre from the start. The wood is affected for example by humidity, temperature and season. Due to the fact that wood is a living material it means:

  • Screws need to be tightened regularly, at least once a year.
  • Massive tabletops might need to settle with up to 0.5% depending on the surroundings.
  • Light from lamps and sunshine have a certain effect on the colour and lightness of the wood surface, so please let the same amount of light expose the whole surface.

To take care of the environment we lacquer a big part of our products with water-based products. This means:

  • Spill of coffee or other liquids must be wiped off immediately.
  • Please clean the surface with washing-up liquid or mild pH neutral cleanser and lukewarm water, wipe with clean water and wipe dry. Do not use cleaning agents which are alkaline, aggressive, contains abrasives or solvents.
  • For disinfection non-alcohol based agents are recommended, such as Virkon or DAX Alco Free. Alcohol based agents should not be used.
  • For normal cleaning, please use a slightly damp cloth with a mild cleaning agent without solvents or abrasives.
  • For badly soiled surfaces, please use an alcohol-based cleaner and a damp cloth.
  • Alcohol based agents can be used to disinfect if it is wiped dry with a cloth afterwards.
