Inga Sempé’s Pandarine fuses the luxurious comfort of a bed with the versatility of a modular sofa in an elegant and versatile design. The armrests come either in a cylindrical form, or with a reclining design that can be adjusted individually in the same way as the metal-hinged backrests. This gives Pandarine the ability to transform into a unified, mattress-like surface where the backrests serve as huge, soft pillows. Constructed using a combination of Nozag springs, foam, and wadding, Pandarine is designed to provide exceptional comfort in any number of sitting or lying positions. Available in two- and three-seater versions with options for additional chaise longues and corner modules, its range of textiles and configurations give it great flexibility for use in a variety of private and public contexts.
Available in a range of fabric or leather upholstery.
‘Inga is original and fun, and she manages to incorporate that combination into her products, which always contain a new and surprising angle. We are very proud to have Inga Sempé on board.’ Mette Hay With her intellectual arts background, French designer Inga Sempé is no stranger to the creative domain, but her approach to the design field is unconventional and driven by an explorative and entrepreneurial energy. Inga Sempé’s working process is guided by intuition, and the first stage is always drawing by hand. ’I don’t take a structured approach in my design process but gradually work my way into a given task by drafting. What inspires me most is knowing that people use my objects in their everyday life. That is where my focus lies. Creating simple designs with a light feel, which, hopefully, will add something new to people’s daily life.’ Inga Sempé is fascinated with small objects and tools, because they can be moved around, and because tools in turn can be used to make new things. Screws, nuts and bolts therefore play a special role in Inga’s expression. This slightly nerdy side coupled with her artistic and intuitive creativity leads to new and innovative products. All Inga Sempé’s sofas, lamps, tables, clocks and now HAY’s Pinorama and Letter Boxes thus reflect her subtle, unrestrained and tactile design approach with a unique and personal expression that many international top brands have noticed and embraced.
