Nagare, which means ‘flow’ in Japanese, is a new collection of lounge furniture that responds to the way we work today. This collection of seating and tables, inspired by nature, brings a gentle sense of movement and creates a place of repose within the information storm of our times.

Nagare provides the opportunity for mindfulness and introspection, as if you are sitting on the bank of a brook. Nagare consists of two distinct families NAGARE Lounge and NAGARE Platform each element possesses a sculptural quality that makes a bold aesthetic statement, while also being highly functional. This new collection has been carefully designed to help us work more effectively wherever work might happen.


Designed by Rainlight

Nagare is designed in collaboration with Rainlight - a product design studio located in London and Los Angeles, with client collaborations across North America, Europe, and Asia. More than a design practice, Rainlight discovers the needs of a changing world through cross-cultural research within their own network of experts in various market sectors. Part Laboratory, part workshop, part studio, Rainlight combines inspired design thinking with business acumen to create artefacts that enhance how people live, work, and play in the real world.

NAGARE Lounge Type

Very much intended as a statement piece, NAGARE Lounge has been inspired by geologic forms almost looking as though it might have been hewn from the earth. The range is suitable for a huge variety of environments where calm and introspection are needed or where its inspirational form can encourage interaction. This visually bold piece facilitates work on the move with functional provisions such as power and USB ports, it is ideal for reception spaces and client lounge areas, where visitors can plug in and recharge with ease.

NAGARE Platform Type

While NAGARE Lounge is of the earth, NAGARE Platform has a lighter, more ethereal aesthetic that allows users to perch on its horizontal plane and perform any number of tasks. It is designed to facilitate informal ways of working and collaboration in the shared areas of the office - such as active receptions and touchdown points, break-out spaces, cafes and co-working environments, supporting creative thinking and rejuvenation. Available with or without a back, NAGARE Platform encourages collaborative activities and impromptu communication, as well as allowing solo workers the opportunity to spread out and have space to think.
