The congress couch is for business people of all sorts. It is a modular couch system designed for open offices. And it intentionally creates a private, peaceful space for workers to rest, meet, or work away from distractions. The congress couch is based on two modular pieces coming together. It is also approachable for workers of all skill levels to assemble. At the same time, it is comfortable no matter who is seeking a respite from a busy office. Aside from encouraging a sustainable work life, we also tried to tackle sustainable manufacturing of the congress couch.
