We are so happy to announce that the sofa BE A PART OF won the Red Dot Award 2019!
Ella describes the product herself …
“I designed the sofa because I wanted to create something that could make a difference to someone. Create a product to change the view of who public environments are for. Create a place for everyone to feel inclusive. ” “Be a party of is created for people who are in a wheelchair and who do not want to be side by side all the time. The wheelchair user should be able to enter a room and feel confident that there is a place. ” “The space in the middle of the sofa allows wheelchairs to be in the center and be able to be surrounded by loved ones. The space also creates a space for two people to sit opposite each other and be able to look each other in the eyes. ”
