Danish office furniture manufacturer Cube Design has participated in the project Design Boost, where groups of architecture students at Aalborg University – from assignments given by Cube Design – have developed proposals for new products that can fit the future office environment and be included in the Cube Design’s range. Ten groups with a total of 42 students presented their ideas to a panel of judges, and the winning project was the unique piece of office and lounge furniture Cody, created by a group of 4 students after several months of work.

The idea of Cody is to create a workspace that supports the needs of users in an informal way. Cody is based upon values that balance between private and professional life, and offers multiple use options, both as office and lounge furniture. Cody invites to cooperation, but at the same time, each individual has his or her own zone, thanks to the furniture angles. Cody is considered to have great market potential because it can perform in different environments.

At Cube Design, they are very happy with the winning project: “You have created an iconic piece of furniture that we can include in our product portfolio. Cody can make a difference for us. It has a great branding effect, and Cube Design might be known as the Cody company,” said CEO Benny Sørensen, Cube Design, to the winning group, consisting of the four students Tilde Haasen Brinch, Jeppe Borchers Jensen, Yussef Karim and Dimitris Palyros.

Design Boost is a project that creates activities to provide Danish wood, furniture and interior design companies with the opportunity to collaborate with designers, in order to create added value products by using design. The Design Boost project is managed by Lifestyle & Design Cluster, and is supported by the TUUF foundation.
