TERMO is a modern interpretation of seat shapes for public and living interiors. The collection uniqueness lies in the possibility of assembling various elements of the system, like blocks, to the form in the shape of a bath-tub made of fiberglass. Richness of variants of the seat position against the backrest and connecting them with additional elements of a separate seat or table gives architects and users wide scope to create fanciful compositions of 1-, 2- or 3-module furniture. In case of public interiors the seat is fixed in a non-detachable way and it is also possible to fix the tub to the floor. For living interiors the seat can be unfastened and the tub space can be used as a container.
