Totally reconfigurable and scalable, Heartbeat is composed of three distinct seating elements: Straight, Concave, and Convex. Repositioning these three elements allows for the creation of a myriad of unique, morphing, undulating, physical landscapes. The shape and direction of the alternating seating resembles a wave or a pulse, keeps guests from being seated back to back, and makes it effortless to spark interaction. Designed to facilitate conversation, Heartbeat suggests sharing a “heart to heart” with your fellow human being.[/vc_column_text][lab_divider title=”RECENT IN DESIGN”][lab_portfolio_items category_filter=”no” columns=”4″ pagination_type=”hide” portfolio_query=”size:12|order_by:date|post_type:,portfolio|tax_query:1192″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
