Jaks Inspire New Seating

jaksJaks are no longer the name of childhood game. It is now an innovative modular seating system designed by John Coleman for Allermuir. Jaks were specifically designed for Allermuir to be pieces that could stand alone or interlocked to create intriguing patterns. The new soft seating will be introduced at NeoCon East today. The cross shape design allows seating for four people or when arranged together to provide an area for netowrking. The cool addition of the squares can act as tables or footrests. These unique crosses would bring any social area alive.

John Coleman is a well know designer with plenty of experience under his belt. He graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1979 and started his own studio in 1981. Coleman’s studio mostly focuses on producing designs for the industry, but their design intent is to produce pieces that are “restrained, understated and timeless.”
